My son is constantly picking on 7 year old girl, I keep telling him to stop, I take things away, ground him and still does no good. What is there to do? I thought it helped by taking away what they like, well it doesnt work. HELP!!

I have been having this problem as well. My son is 10 and the little one is 3 and the 7 year old picks on the little one constantly but when I go to break it up they tell me they love each other. Sometimes I think it is just to see what attention they can get. I try to ignore them as long as they aren't seriously hurting each other. They tend to work out the problems on their own. They need to learn to do this without us doing it for them all the time.
