My oldest DD, whom turned 2 at the end of August is physically hurting my 4 and 1/2 month old DD. I don't know what to do anymore, it's getting out of hand. I've tried everything to make her stop, but it doesn't seem to be working & it's getting to the point that my baby is scared of my oldest. She screams when she walks into the room. I have taken away toys, treats, playtime, tv time. Shes gotten time out, she's gotten hit a few times so she know that it hurts. (i don't really believe in hitting) but, its getting frustrating. I NEED HELP! She hits, kicks, punches, jumps on, scratches her. I can't even leave them in the same room together. They will be playing so nicely together (supervised of course!!) I'm right there! But, it always happens so fast! It can't be avoided. Then, when it happens and I discipline my DD, she knows what she did is wrong, and is made to apologize and kiss her sister, I'm lost & it has to stop! HELP!Answer Question

My oldest was physical with her younger sister starting at about 18 months. I talked to my daughter about it and found out she was afraid that she wouldn't be loved anymore since the baby was more mobile and getting into her things. That was a stresser for her and she took it out on her sister. So we talked and talked and punished her and after a few months she slowly stopped. I hope this gives you hope.
