Avery has started hitting and tackling when she is excited and happy. She has bitten in the past (when excited) and we have managed to get her to stop doing that by explaining it is not nice to bite and it hurts people. Ok, maybe we haven't put a stop to it as Emerson (her twin sister) had a bite mark on her arm after naps today. UHG! About 3 or 4 times this afternoon she was hitting or tackling her sister or her cousin when she was excited. Each time we pulled her away from the situation and explained that hitting was not nice it hurt and reminded her of a time she was hit by a little boy and how it hurt her feelings. The worst was this evening before bed she pinned her sister and was beating her while laughing and her sister was screaming for help.
Any advice on this? If it were anger I think I would be able to help her better, but her being happy and laughing while hitting her sister...makes me think I could have a psychopath on my hands (just kidding)
