My lovely little girl will not stop hitting and biting. I've read the books, googled the articles, talked to family members, and we're still in despair. Her 5 year old brother is beside himself. He doesn't know what to do but more importantly I don't know what do to anymore. Read books, googled articles, talked to the Ped, but it's just a constant. She's joyous for half hour and then Pow. We've tried time outs, apologies are a constant (for years), trying to get to her before she acts, talking to her about it in a thousand different ways. After she bit her brother tonight I just realized she hasn't changed in years. I'm not going to spank her, it won't help. I don't know how to teach her to stop before acting. She's a funny engaging little girl but her violence just continues.
Any help Mama's would be appreciated.
