In my opinion nothing is normal every child is different. That is definently something i have learned by having two children of my own. I do however think that you do prehaps need to try to in some way to show or teach your child that hitting and scratching is not nice i am in no way at all saying abuse your child but you are the parent and it is your responsibility to teach her right from wrong. My daughter was also very sensitive about things at that age but at some point you have to disicipline them the longer you wait the harder it will be. try just talking to her at first and explaining that that type of behaivior isnt nice or that that hurts mommies feelings or makes you sad when she does that. I hope this willl be some sort of help.

You definitely want to try something now. If you wait until she gets too much older, you may not have control of her. It will get harder and harder to get her to listen the older she gets. Try taking things away, time out, or just sternly saying 'NO"

Yer... they can be like this... mine is at 15 months. I don't smack or abuse... but she does get time out, and removed from the situation, everytime. Since we started doing that she has gotten better. She still attacks her big sister, but big sister hits her too. The more aggressive big sis is... the more aggressive lil sis is... its a vicious circle... its why I know smacking just wouldn't work in this case.



Be consistant, be patient, don't get angry and don't let her get away with it even once.. let her know its wrong and punish her for it.
