My 2 1/2 year old is mean to our new puppy. She will pick her up and throw her or kick at her. Sometimes she will try to pull her legs apart like you would a wishbone. We have been trying to reinforce the right way for her to play with the puppy, telling her to give it sweet, soft pets and showing her how. She will do really good for a while and then as soon as whoever is watching them looks away or has to go answer the phone or something then she will start over with the mean stuff. I don't want to have to get rid of the puppy and I don't like having to constantly scold my child either. Any advice??
