So here is the story:
DD2 is 22months old and hits DD1 for various reasons, when DD1 is in her way, sits too close, when DD2 wants something DD1 has but doesn't want to give etc etc.
I have dealt with it by saying to DD2 'this is not nice, say sorry to your sister, and be nice to your sister (and I show her how we are gentle etc)'. DD2 usually says sorry and is nice to DD1 afterwards, but then 10 min later this happens again.
I have just kept doing the same in the hope that this is just a phase and she will stop it eventually when she is a bit older.
Now DH wants to put DD2 in time-out in her cot when she hits her sister. I kind of think she is too young for a time-out and am not sure whether I am ready to start down that track just yet. Perhaps when she is 2.5 and should know better, but not now. Time-outs worked well for DD1 when she was about 3, but not much before that.
What do you think? Time-out or not or any other methods you would suggest?
