My DD is 2yo. I watch 2 other kids, one of whom is a few months younger than my DD. My DD is incredibly aggressive! She bites, hits, and screams MINE! at the top her lungs if he even comes near her and she has a toy. I have tried distracting both of them with separate toys. If he does manage to get a toy she is playing with, she will hit or bit. I have tried talking to her, time outs, spankings, and I have even bit her back. That worked for a couple days but then she was back to the biting! I have explained what sharing is and how to share. I don't know what to do anymore! I can't afford to lose my job but I'm afraid that I will if this continues! I spend as much time with her and cuddling with her as I can during the day when I have the other children, and I certainly make up for any lost hugs and kisses after the other kids are gone. What do I do?!

Keep up with what your doing. My daughter and son will say mine also. But I correct them quickly with "ours." I let both know that we have to share the toys. If my daughter has a toy that her brother wants I'll distract him with other toys until it's "his turn" to play with a particular toy. I'm constantly congratulating them for sharing and waiting for their turn. Good Luck.
