"As a pediatrician, I am so glad to have a resource with specific advice for toddlers who hit. This book acknowledges hitting is a normal albeit difficult stage and arms children and parents with developmentally appropriate language and strategies to help. Well done!" --Kelly Fradin, MD, FAAP pediatrician, author, and mother of two

"Dr. Cara Goodwin does a beautiful job writing in toddler-friendly language and highlighting all the important points a caregiver should cover when it comes to hitting: feelings and self-regulation skills they can practice. I am happy to add this book to the resources I recommend to parents and caregivers." --Michelle Tangeman, LMFT, BCBA, founder of Thriving Toddler and Michelle Tangeman Behavioral Health

"What to Do When You Feel Like Hitting is a great resource for families. As a parent of two toddlers, I struggle to find the right way to discipline my children when their behaviors are loud and clear, such as hitting. This book is a helpful and approachable resource that parents can use to help instill positive behaviors. Most importantly, I love how inclusive the book is and the priority that is placed on including a diverse group of characters. This is a favorite go-to book in our house as well as a gift I'll be giving to other parents!" --Alex Turnbull, RDN, LD, author of Baby Food Cookbook for First-Time Parents

"This book is beautifully written and illustrated for young children to engage their attention while teaching strategies for self-regulation, a critical skill to last a lifetime. Dr. Goodwin packages years of evidence-based research on promoting positive behaviors in young children into language kids can understand and techniques parents can use at home. A must-have addition to any parent's library." --Emily Edlynn, PhD, clinical psychologist, parenting columnist for Parents.com, and author of The Art and Science of Mom blog

"Dr. Goodwin's book creates a fantastic dialogue for us to teach our children various ways to regulate their emotions, which in turn helps them stop hitting. It is a great addition to a child's bookshelf!" --Cindy Hovington, PhD, founder of Curious Neuron

"Dr. Goodwin has managed to normalize a wide range of children's feelings while offering a diverse range of concrete coping skills, all in child-friendly language. This book is an incredible tool for families to use with their children with big feelings to build resilience and emotion regulation skills. The level of inclusivity and representation in this book is a refreshing inspiration. We highly recommend this book for families, clinicians, and teachers who are helping little ones navigate their big feelings." --Dr. Shanna Alvarez and Dr. Jenna Elgin, psychologists and co-founders of Helping Families Thrive
