  • Ok, the best way to get a child to stop bad behavior is a multi-step process. Firstly, make sure she knows you love her by spending time with her doing fun things. Secondly, when you have successfully built a good relationship, you need to figure out what her favorite things are. If she loves a particular tv show or whatever it is. Then make a chart, make sure the rules are clear, NO HITTING. If she hits, she gets an x on her chart. Because she is so young, she should be given at least three chances before things are taken away. On the chart make boxes, the first three empty and the following five with things that she loves written inside. Each time she hits, she gets an x and when you x over something, take it away. You will need to be consistent and do a new chart daily. I hope this makes sense and helps.

  • I had a friend who was in a similar situation. She also taught her niece to potty train. Unfortunately, as soon as she went back to the mom, she was put back in diapers. Is there anyway your brother could get full custody?

  • Tell her (over and over if necessary) "No HItting". Time outs don't work for little ones who don't understand what they did wrong. Teach her what she did wrong, don't punish her for what she's not understanding
