I have a 22 month old and a 6 month old. Upon bringing baby home my toddler was great w/her. We often discussed "nice to baby" when she was still in womb. Latley she is getting mean and aggressive. Often pinching and hitting mainly in the fac area. The "wall" was her time out spot following the one minute per year of age rule. Suddenly she thinks the wall is fun!! She will act out towards baby and then say to me "wall?" as though she wants to go there. Any suggestions??
My twins are 22 months too,and they pinch and hit each other... mostly over toys. I explain how it hurts by telling them 'ouchie' and making a sad face... depending on how severe depends on if I put them in time out or not (I generally kinda tap them on the hand and get down at their level and in a stern voice say "no!"). I also correct the behavior and show how to 'pet' and say "niiice' w/ a big smile so they understand, OH and lately I also have them 'make up' by hugging. This has helped a lot, your daughter might think she is just playing around not realizing how bad it can hurt or maybe just trying to get some attention (so when she does act nice or gentle w/ her sibling, praise her and make a HUGE Deal about it).
