she is continually hurting her now 1 yr old baby brother! We can't even leave her alone with him for a minute. Today while at the park she gave him a black eye !!! I am so frustrated!!! Should I be taking her to see someone about this? This can't be normal and I am sick of her brother getting hurt! She says she hates him but what to do about this TERRIBLE behivioR?
Does she say WHY she hates him? Ask her. If she is able to communicate that with you, you might be able to deal with what is behind the anger. If it is jealousy, make more one on one time with her. There are also some good books for sibling rivalry http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html Click on Siblings/Sibling Rivalry/Welcoming New Baby. Also some good books for you and your daughter to read together which addresses the issue of a new baby which are age appropriate for her.
