My son jace hits, pulls hair, kicks me when I change his butt, bites I mean you name it he does it and his 6 yr old sister is his main target. I swat his hand or butt when he does these things only because my daughter cries if I don't she feels like I'm not protecting her. But I'm not sure if hitting him back is the way to teach him not to hit its kinda an oxymoro. But how else is he gonna know it hurts if he don't feel what he's doing to her??

He's not mean he's 2, I went threw that too, I bit all the kids in the block, they were all scared of me, but my 2 old brothers and older sister were not why? Cuz if I ever tried to bit them they would have bitten me back, I knew this that why I've never bit them, however you can't tell your daughter. To bit back(well you can up to you) ut you do need her to stand up to herself, your son is testing bounderies and will continue to untill he is stop, I would as a parent stop hitting him cuz he just hitting back, with my son I lower my voice so it deep and bomming and say "stop we do not hit" my son will turn and look at me and throw him self on the floor with a fit I just say then "too bad so sad we do not hit" and walk away, you son want attention and reaction. He knows if he hits his sister she will cry and you'll be there to either take him away or take his hand. You also need to explain to your daughter that hitting is not okay at any age, but you son to younge to fully understand why, but you daughter needs to pull the stops on it, if she gently pushes him away and moves away from him she defending her self, is she stops his hand in mid hit and pushes it away and moves away she too is defending her self, if she keeps doing that the 2 year old will get bored and will stop cuz he not getting the reaction he wants. (Sorry I did this on my phone so it not typing right)
