My second daughter has always had a more aggressive personality than my first. She has always gone headfirst into everything and is very independent. Recently she has started hitting her older sister (2 and a half) for seemingly no reason. She does it when she's upset, when she is excited, or just to get attention. In your opinion, what is the best way to let her know that there is a better way to express her frustration/excitement/want for attention? I have thought about getting her one of those punching bag things for children that pop back up after you knock them down, but will this help her let out aggression/energy or will it promote her hitting?
