My niece is horrible about this (she's a little over 2) with Troy. She hits/pushes/swats at him for no reason most of the time and we have tried a lot of things, but nothing is stopping. She is a great talker and so frustration with communication isn't an issue. HELP!
The thing that works really well (oddly enough) is just letting Marshall know that by doing whatever he is doing hurts Mommy or Daddy and he responds to that empathy factor and generally stops the behavior. I don't if you have tried that already, but if you haven't maybe she will respond to telling her she is hurting Troy by doing that. Good luck!
I would try telling her if she can't play nice with Troy then she can't play with him at all. And remove her either by putting her on time-out or by taking away the toy she's playing with, show she's watching, etc?
