My daughter is hitting and biting my 6 and 10 year old nieces even if they are just trying to hug her or as little touch her. They are never mean to her so I don't know why she does it. The other day my nieces had their cousins over who are about the same age as they are and my daughter didn't bite them but she did hit them when they would touch her or try to give her a hug. I have told her that it is not nice to bite or hit and tried to discipline her but nothing seems to work. What should I do?

U could try giving her a timeout sit her on the floor n juz hold her in one place with her back facing u say this is a timeout biting n hitting isnt nice etc n maybe she'll start to understand that she's in trouble when she has to stay still. she won't like having to stay in one spot. GOOD LUCK!!!!! I'm going through similar issues kinda

Thats funny..my nieces think its funny too, until she gets them real good and draws blood. Then they cry and want me to punish her and im like you kept letting her do it but i still tell her not to. she is very stubborn and NEVER listens to me. Thanks for the help.
