What do you do when your toddler hits their baby sibling? DS is 2.5yo and DD is 6 months old. Today I caught him repeatedly slapping her face and I nearly lost my cool. It was a first time, so I didn't know how to react or to discipline him. It really caught me off guard. I'd like tips for what to do if it happens again. Any suggestions?
I don't smack and tend to use lots of positive reinforcement and repetition to teach him things, and it works quite well. His language is good, he understand what we say to him, and is starting to learn 3-4 word sentences.
