When you have an older child who is hurting a younger child, what do you do to protect the younger child? We often ask how to stop the older child's behavior, and many will comment on the fact that the behavior is age-appropriate and he/she will grow out of it eventually. But what about the younger child? How do you protect him/her? What do you do to make sure his/her childhood experience is not dominated by getting hurt by the older sibling?
