In regards to the hitting, whining, being nice to the DC children, maybe charts with stickers would help? A sticker for using words and not hitting, stickers for not whining when brother hits her, stickers for eating like a big girl, stickers for helping the DC kids....you get the idea. Make them simple and make the stickers great. You could even get a chart at the teachers store downtown. You could remove a favourite toy from the 2 year old if that would be effective...it is difficult when the hitter is your own, not fun to explain to DC parents:-) I have also found that it is just a stage and thankfully my ds is getting out of it at 4 1/2. He still will call names (fake words that he makes up like "clogger") and we reenforce that its not ok. but you can only do what you can do to turn them into little civilized people and also to have a stress free day. Good luck.

The one thing that came to mind when I was reading your post....kids feed off your emotions. They know when they're getting you fired up. You need to calm yourself before you deal with them. I have a friend that says "OH 'Johnny' stop it! THAT"S IT! TIME OUT!" A better way might be....calmly...(and this is the hard part)...."We are not allowed to hurt people, sit here for 3 min."
I don't know, sometimes it's hard to stay calm but I found it really helped, My DS fed off my emotions soooo much. (we just went through a 3 week stint of him pulling DD hair (till it fell out!) CALM time outs nipped it in the bud.
Hope this helps a bit....??

Can you stop taking in DC kids? Your children come first and this behavior can only get worse without real solutions. The first few years of life are really the template for how your kids will react,
learn, and cope....
I think they need some focus. Just you, and not just when you can fit in an hour or so of alone time.
OK i know this may be unreasonable for many reasons...but maybe even having only DC kids max 3 times a week.
