Just my thoughts, cheers. ...Read more

My sister's toddler constantly hit my baby.Knowing my baby is 2years 10 months and my sister's is 2years and 7 months.How can I stop such an attitude?

The only solution is: To tell your sis calmly that the kids can't play together until you & she decide how to discipline the boys. If she agrees, since your son may be povoking hers, tell both boys the rule: if you can't play nicely, you'll both be put into time out. As soon as you hear a scuffle, walk each to t.O. Without talking. Read " little people" by ed christopherson for how to do effective time-outs. ...Read more
