For those unfamiliar with kittens... The standard kitten package includes:

DO NOT assume that because your kitten has a handle, it should be treated like a briefcase. Use the kitten handle only when moving the kitten swiftly is of vital importance (e.g. when a piano is about to squish it, or when a savage dog threatens to eat it). Otherwise, encourage kitten to walk from place to place with gentle nudges or proffered nutritious snacks.

The cat handle is useful for discipline. Pick them up by the scruff of their neck, and swat them firmly on the nose with the tip of your finger. You can't hit them hard enough to cause pain by doing this, but it is an effective deterrent. While doing this say in a firm voice "No!". Eventually, just saying "No" in that tone of voice will have the same effect.
