Ok, I have two girls. My oldest Trinity turned 2 in January and my youngest Dyllun will be 1 in May. Dyllun has just begun to walk about 2 weeks ago. It seems as though since about that time Trinity has decided to start pushing Dyllun over. She will be walking by Trinity while Trinity is on the couch and she will just shove her with her foot repeatedly until she pushes her over. I have tried time out, which doesn't really seem to work. And I am pretty much totally against hitting them but today she pushed her over and she knocked her head on the coffee table and now has a big bruise so today I have given her a couple of smacks on the thigh to get her to stop and it has worked but again I hate hate hate having to do so.
Why do you think she's doing this? What should I do to stop it and what type of punishment has worked for you Moms?
I'm just worried because she usually isn't like that at all and I'm always right here but who knows how badly she could hurt Dyllun since she is still so wobbly. Thanks Moms!!!
