Adrian is Very strong minded and he's always bullying my oldest son. I know it's wrong but i tell my oldest just to pop him one good time and let him know hey i'm older and i will not keep taking this from you. But he will not do it. I'm running out of ideas.

Hi Alicia,you havent said how old they are but I dont think you really want to have the big one pop the little one.They sound like they have very different personalities and thats OK. If your older child is more placid than the younger does it really matter? I think you need to let them work out the balance.Does it bother them as much as it bothers you? I wouldnt step in unless he is getting hurt he might just think his little brother is the best thing since sliced bread! Maybe tell him that it worries you and ask him why he lets it happen. Children are smart he probably has a reason. Good luck
