One of my attempts to teach Azalia to hit less is to teach her to be patient. I would stroke her chest and say "sabar, sabar" everytime she starts to get angry.
The other day we went to the playground and she wanted to go the the other side of the lake. Just as we reached there, it started to drizzle. I told her to run as fast as she can to the car. While running I would say "cepat cepat..nak rain dah"
Half way, she stopped and said
"Mak, Alia penat. Alia tak boleh run. Sabar mak sabar, sabar. "
