I usually get up & stop playing with (4.5yo) DD when she KNOWS she has done something wrong.... Like if she bites/pinches its automatically I get up & leave the room...
And if she is doing other smaller things, I give her 1-2 warnings first before stop playing.
For example we where just playing in her Highlights book. We where sappose to be taking turns drawing string from the kite flier to the kite... Well she was not happy that it was my turn (and she realized I would get more "kite turns" than her) so she decided to put her head in my way. The first time I ask her to move (she didnt know she was in my way) so then she made sure she was in my head. I ask her to move again. Nothing... So I closed the book & put my crayon away.
Am I being to harsh? Or is this OK & reasonable to teach her sharing & that others wont want to keep playing with her when she is not nice?

I think its ok as long as your explaining why your stopping and what she needs to for you to play again etc. So she understands what behavior is expected of her and the consequence if she doesnt listen etc.
