We use the emotional bucket- do nice things to fill each other's bucket if you hurt someone that's emptying their bucket, if my son has hurt my feeling or actually hurt me I say that action empties my bucket it's not acceptable you need to make it better, they will apologise and give me a hug or fix what they did wrong most of the time- helps them visualise the emotions

Ahhhh hugs to you! It's hard to discipline a 3 year old!
I'm keen to say that although the discipline you're using seems right it's obviously not working for your child, perhaps switching the tables around, asking your child if she'd like that done to her how would she feel... works well with my DD mind you it doesn't with DS he just ignores me.
I go on to explain why we need to ask if the person we've hurt is ok... It's better than an empty sorry and go on saying no one would want to play with her if she behaves like that, sometimes she gets upset if it's accidental I had to explain that happens but we still need to make sure the person we've hurt is ok.
