My two year old can get very aggressive. She doesn’t mean to be but she gets quite violent - she hits, scratches, and bites. I don’t know what the best way to tell her off or guide her away from doing it is. Is there anyone that can help with ways to discourage behaviour like this?

How is your daughter's speech? I usually find children act like this when they're struggling to let you know what they want.

I used to work in the nursery and we always spoke about kind hands and kind words/mouth to get the children to understand. I have taken this to motherhood but my little one is only 13 months old so haven't got to this stage just yet!
