I recently noticed my son has a bad habit of hitting my face when he's angry. How early can I start disciplining? Because I tell him NO but its like talking to a wall.

My friends baby boy just started the same thing, and telling him no never worked. After countless times of him hitting her, she finally pretended to cry and his eyes got wide.... He then grabbed her face and kissed her, you can tell he didn't like seeing her cry... It might not work, but it is worth a try
My son went through a stage of hitting. I was always paranoid when people were around. I don’t think he realized what he was doing. He got sent to the corner when he’d not take no for an answer. He did grow out of it so hang tight and be strong.
Letting your son know that it hurts like Sandra suggested is a great idea. Have you tried saying "nice hands" and redirecting him? How about a short time out? Most kids at this age go through something like this and he will likely grow out of it.
Umm you can start disciplining them immediately! There are a lot of different ways to discipline a child especially since "spanking is so frowned upon" but c'mon a slap on the bottom especially if they wear a diaper isn't going to physically hurt them but it probably would hurt their feelings and to me THAT IS OK. Anyways, if you look up positive/ negative reinforcements you can get a lot of ideas on different things to do. Time outs are a big one that worked with us though I know some people have kids that won't listen to they won't do it. And this may be mean but I tell you what my son is one of the most well behaved kids you'll meet probably because he hated doing it so he didn't do things to get in trouble. But in his time-out corner I would make him stand and put both of his arms up on the wall slightly above his head - you do it for a minute for how old they are so in your case 1 minute. But there are a lot of different ways to discipline with the positive/ negative reinforcements which is where I'd start.
My boy is 22 months and he has just started doing the same thing. I guess its really a stage.
Oh my son is doing the same thing. Glad I am not alone wondering what is wrong with him lol
It's best to start disciplining as soon as you can physically see they are denying your command when you say "no" or "stop." Children are way smarter than we give them credit for! The sooner they realize that what you say goes, the better for you and him/her! If you are constantly struggling with getting obedience, your relationship will suffer. When they are obedient, your relationship is enjoyable! Take running out in the street for example. If he or she starts for the road and you yell, "stop!" The child needs to know that he or she has no choice but to obey. Same with an electrical socket, or a stove, fireplace, etc...As parents, we don't make up rules to be jerks...it's FOR their safety and their best interest. Good luck! <3
Mine just stopped doing same thing. But he was once in that stage and then he laughs afterwards so I had to be very firm that he is hurting me and it's not good.
Children are so smart! They have to be told no and know that you mean it. However you get to that point! Patience mama!
My nephew had the same problem and teaching him about "nice hands" seemed to make a difference. You can always try reinforcements with having nice hands as opposed to hitting. It definitely takes patience and work which can be stressful, but worth it. Good luck!!
Start the disciple as soon as possible. The longer a parents waits to disciple the more control the child is receiving. Just like many of the ladies here said, there are so many ways to disciple. Personally, I am old school and I believe in the "spanking" so to me that is what I would do. A small spanking in the butt-tucks or on the hands all depending on what they did. I would also reprimand them in the corner too. Now they are grown and all well behaved. All parents are different and believe differently.
