Hitting

Hitting is trying to hurt someone using your hands and arms.

Hitting someone on purpose is a very unkind thing to do.

Hitting people makes them upset and can cause serious injuries. It can be dangerous.

When someone has been unkind to us it can make us feel very angry and upset. This is OK. We can feel like we want to hit them. That is not OK.

It is not nice when people hurt others. We can all try not to hit anyone.
