She doesn't hit other kids and isn't an aggressive child, and she usually saves hitting for her moms, but recently she's hitting the dog and it makes me so angry and sad! The dog is a boxer, so he's a tough guy, and he is unbelievably loving and tolerant toward her. I'm not too worried that he'll do anything in return. I've used a few timeouts and some serious talks about not hitting, but it hasn't worked so far. Today I took away the lollipop she was eating when she hit him. That seemed to get her attention a bit. What else?
