Toddler Kicked Younger Brother?

Today my four year old daughter kicked my 13 month old son in the head. When asked why she did this she said" because she wanted too." She has never done this before. What should I do? I'm a old fashion husband and I know what my dad would have done, but I feel there's a better way. Any suggestions?

It is not unusual to see toddler aggression. It is a result of frustration, among other things, from not being able to communicate properly their needs, and not being able to do things they want. Has your daughter seen this on TV or has she had some change in her life?

This will pass on it's own, but of course, you don't want to leave your baby around the toddler, unsupervised, or in a vulnerable position where the baby could be kicked again.

Here is a link I found for you to read and see further some ideas that will help, along with what to say and do when this happens.

First never ask why, little kids are just impulsive and really don't know why they do stuff. Make it clear that hitting, kicking or hurting others is NOT acceptable and will not be allowed. Tell her that as a dad your job is go keep her and everyone else safe. I would not recommend physical punishment as that would only show her that bigger people can hit littler ones.

I think your daughter is jealous of the attention the baby is getting. Be sure to give her some one on one time. Also, tell her that the baby is "her baby", too, and she needs to take good care of her baby.

Then give her some ways she can help in caring for the baby. Be sure to praise her good behavior and remind her how much you love her.

One more thing, if your children do anything hurtful again to their siblings, really make a big to-do over the hurt sibling. The one doing the hurting doesn't want the other child to have all the attention and probably wouldn't repeat this behavior. Just make sure first though that the offense really happened.
