Being firm with a child is important. Hitting back will not work as you are doing exactly what he is doing. Giving a long lecture also does not help as they don't have the attention span. A firm no and a time out away from toys and in another room. The same discipline has to be adopted by all family members including the father. If required please consult a child counselor and understand the steps better. This is a formative period and habits formed at this time can be very deep rooted.
