My son is 3 and has a 10 month old sister. She likes to follow him around and play with him. Of course all his toys too. Hes so rough with her and Ive tried explaining to him that he needs to be gentle but its not working real well.. Any advice?

i myself use the time out for everytime my eldest is rough with his little brother,a minute for every year of his life my 2 boys are only 10 months apart so they fight alot,but they are 4 and 3 now,they do ave to be seperated sometimes,but also a reward chart with stickers might encourage him to be nice,set him goals everytime he shares something with her or can give her a cuddle reward him with a sticker ? also maybe a bit of jealousy comes into it,my 2 fight constantly over my attention.good luck hope this might of helped,keep me posted.x
