Ear pulling and twisting

My daughter Rhiannon was 3 in July and my son Logan has just turned 18 months, and for the last few weeks she seems to have developed and obsession with his ears. She is constantly pulling, twisting and poking them and not surprisingly he doesn't like it as she isn't gentle when she does it.

It's only been since she started school in September which is the one time she is away from him as when they go to nursery they are in different rooms but she knows he is there. Could it be a comfort thing? I have no idea how to stop her from doing it as no matter how many times she is told off she doesn't stop.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so how did you cure it?
