2 year old bully

by Nikki Montgomery

My sister watches my kids a few days a week. She has a school aged son and a daughter, Riley, 5 1/2 months younger than my oldest daughter, Mia. Yesterday when my husband picked our kids up my sister told him that Mia was being a bit of a bully to her cousin Riley. She was blocking her path when she was trying to walk, she was pulling her by the arm to get her to go somewhere and she pushed Riley down. I understand that this is typical 2 year old stuff, but we have to put an end to it now. When you yell at Mia she just freezes and puts her head down like she can't hear you. 

What is the best way to handle your 2 year old bully?
