How do you handle one of the twins being mean to the other?

My dd can be very nice at times, but other times, I think she is the devil.

She will start out just patting ds and before I know it, she is whacking him in the face or the head.

I remove her from those situations if we are home but what about the stroller? Today she was very unkind to him and I really couldn't remove her from the situation because we were on the city streets....

Any help would be great!

I used to take the one that got hit out of the stroller. Hold them for a few minutes. then put her back in. That way they get Mommy love & the slapper wouldn't like a time out in ways.

i do the same thing as tracy. when they are in the shopping cart together sometimes, dd will pull ds's hair. i tell dd "no hair pulling" and then take ds out and hug him and comfort him.

my twins keep switching the aggressiveness. I use time outs since they were 18 months old.

Thanks for your suggestions! I have continued to remove her from the situations and give her a "time out" in her high chair or just on my lap. They are 14 months and I guess she is getting it! She hasn't been as aggressive this last week.

that's great that she's having a better week!! mine go through good and bad weeks too.

i would be cautious to use your lap because that can be a reward for some children. that's why i take the one that got hurt and hold them. and i try not to use the crib or high chair so they don't associate sleeping or eating with punishment.
