I've been friends with a girl since our babies were 6 months old and see them pretty regularly. They are now 19 month old and a few weeks ago her lg started being rough with my lg with my little girl just looking, thinking "why did you do that". She now has started pulling hair to a point where she won't let go and when she is brought away she lashes out kicking her. It's happened 5 times today and I just wanted to cry when my daughter got really upset. We both tell her it's not nice and to give cuddles but it just carries on. It's getting to a point now that I have to watch them and even on edge when my friends lg gets too close to her which 9/10 always leads to her being rough. She kicks, has bitten, strangles, pulls hair and jumps on top of her when she's playing on the floor. The most my lg has done (to me) is bitten which I bit her back and she hasn't done again. she has even pulled my hair just the once when she got excited which again I pulled it back and said that is naughty and it's not nice. I must point out she has never done any of these things intentionally to other children. She doesn't understand why she is being bulled (so to speak) and don't want her to be doing it herself to other children. I'm getting a little stressed now about this but don't know what to do next? Like I said she does tell her off but if it was me I would do it back to the child? Please give me some advice.
