Oh dear! My DD is going through the same thing...Well scraming, pinching &
pulling hair. However, she did to bite and the past couple of days she has
started biting again!

I have now taken the approach of putting her in her pushchair or Pen. The best thing
to do is to try to remove her from the situation.

My daughter attacked a few lil kids at Tumble tots!!! It was soooo embarrassing!
However, I remained calm spoke to her in a gentle manner & explained why I was
putting her in her pushchair. I told her that she had made the lil boys&girls very
sad, which made mummy sad. I then made a fuss over the other lil children &
ignored my lil girl for a few minutes.

So if your sister isn't with you it may be worth trying this approach. Make loadsa
fuss of your lil boy when you put your niece into her pushchair or highchair for time
out.

This is well worth your sister reading this. https://www.akronchildrens.org/cms/tips/fc019399ca28ce61/tp315.pdf

Goodluck & I hope things start improving soon! You wont fall out with your sister,
as long as you remain calm & explain how you are feeling. Your sister most
probably feels extremely embarrassed about it & most probably not sure what
to do either!

Anyways I'm sure it will all work out fine! x
