Screw you time out.

I don't think this time out crap is working. Or Finley was having an exceptionally bad day and was immune to them?

She bit me 2 times, Gillian 3 times and then herself twice. I don't know what got into her today but it was not a good day for her, me or Gillian.

I'm honestly not sure where to go from here with her either. I don't want to spank her. I did a few times in the beginning but then she was turning around hitting me and Gillian.

How am I supposed to say "no hitting" and then hit her for it in return? Makes no sense to me. Its not exactly setting a good example I guess is my point.

So......I'm lost. I'm just hoping this phase passes quickly. Maybe it was a one day thing? Ugh.

One thing come to mind: Tailor the punishment to the child. If time outs work than great use them. Find something (anything) that will work for her. I find that each kid is totally different and we have to get thru to them in different ways..

i bit ONCE, preschool teacher washed my mouth out with this day can't stand the smell of it. That was 34 years ago, haven't bit anyone since AND still remember being happy that my mother didn't inflict the punishment.
