5.0 out of 5 stars Hands are not for hitting
I purchased this book for my son who has a diagnosis of Autism to understand the importance of using hands positively. I believe this book has done that. It not only discusses what hands are not for, it outlines what hands are for, thus giving children a substitution for a bad behaviour...

1.0 out of 5 stars Just draws attention to the idea.
I bought this for my 2 year old as he was going through a bad phase. However, it just brought his attention to the idea of hitting even more. He enjoyed reading the book but didn't learn a thing from it. Perhaps he was just too young.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stopped my toddler hitting!, 1 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Hands are Not for Hitting (Good Behaviour) (Hardcover)
A simple book ideal for toddlers. I was willing to try anything to stop my little 2 year old boy hitting others. This has definitely done the trick, unbelievable! Now I just need one about pushing :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hit!, 9 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Hands are Not for Hitting (Good Behaviour) (Hardcover)
This is a great aid for helping to teach autistic children what hands are for and what they are NOT for. It needs to be coupled with a social story i think, which you can easily find guidance for online. My son still hits though unfortunately, but i do feel we are making slow progress! They also do a 'Feet are not for Kicking' book, which i may have to invest in. Not sure they do a 'Heads are not for Butting' book but i need that as well....

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, 19 May 2013

I bought this book on recommendation from my son's nursery as he had started hitting out at us and others at nursery - they found by explaining to him how people felt using the book with its pictures he seemed to understand and therefore I thought I'd follow this up at home- we still have some moments but atleast now by reciting the title and that it makes us feel sad there has been a big improvement- partly though I assume due to his development too as they say its a phrase they all go through but I was willing to try anything and this book didn't hurt to buy for future moments should I need to use it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 26 Dec. 2013

Great book, however I think it is more appropriate for a younger age group perhaps 2 - 4 though I guess it depends on the child .

This book is so helpful.
Beautiful illustrations and a great theme for my children. Especially my autistic child.
This is a well used sentence in my house: "hands are not for hitting."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant Resource!, 20 Jan. 2010

I bought this because my 8 year old autistic son is hitting out whenever he is angry or frustrated. I am very pleased with the book. The illustrations are lovely and there is alot to discuss on each page. The story re-inforces the fact that hands are not for hitting they are for doing lots of other things with. It prompts you to carry out games with your child.

I am impressed with this book, it will be a useful tool for me to reinforce the fact that hands are not for hitting.
