I am currently fostering a 6 year old little girl who is terribly jealous of other babies. I know of sibling rivalry and that it is common for a child to be jealous of their new baby brother or sister but what do you do when a child is jealous of all babies. She will twist the skin and do chicken scratches on babies and toddlers. She will even go into a sleeping babies cot and hurt them even when she is getting attention. I am worried that she will get worse and that it one day wont just be a pinch or scram. I also seen her kick our dog down the stairs. So if she can do that to an innocent animal what else is she capable of. We tell her we love her and give her attention all the time and we discipline her also. But I just really do not know what to do anymore? I am constantly having to have eyes at the back of my head.
