I wasn't aware of a Behaviour Mod expert having ever been here. At the stage of learning to speak, it must be frustrating to not manage to communicate something verbally but realizing that it is possible to do so. But the situation you describe shouldn't need many sords : "Stop" should be one of the first words a child is helped to learn. If a child is bothered or frightened by an action the adult considers loving and expects to be enjoyable, its not hard for them to indicate this non-verbally, and the adult should promptly stop. I wonder, too, how she is disciplined. One of the under-recognized ill-effects of physical disciplne ( smacking, etc ) is that it teaches kids that this is an acceptable way to indicate disapproval.
