Yet again I'm beginning to doubt myself. This is what Ciara did to Enya this morning! Enya's face is also a mess of scratches as Ciara keeps attacking her when Enya dosen't immediately give her what Ciara wants. I never thought I'd say this but thank goodness for the glasses, at least Enya's eyes are protected.
We are mostly doing time outs but I'm afraid when Ciara (or Enya for that matter) gets physical, we (I) do shout and even smack them. We also make the perpetrator apologise and kiss the victim better and later discuss (calmly) with them what they did wrong. Has anyone good advice about how else I can discourage biting and scratching as I'm open for most suggestions!
