My two year old daughter is constantly hitting or trying to hit her 11 month old brother. I started putting her in time out for 5 minutes. I set an egg timer for 5 and then leave the room. When it goes off I immediately go in and take her out of time out. It has worked well. It is hard at the age of 2 to fully understand what this new sibling truly is but I am so happy that they are close in age for they will be extremely close as they grow up...it's worth a few time outs.
