Question

My 6 year old son is bullying and hitting his 4 year old brother behind my back and telling him not to tell and lying about it to me. The 4 year old is acting out in daycare, already being kicked out of one for being uncontrollable from hitting, kicking, biting, and destroying office when being contained for misbehavior due to his brother's bullying, taking toys, hitting and being mean at home when no one is looking. I have separated them as much as possible having limited interactions and have tried EVERYTHING (time-outs, putting up all toys, removing all fun items out of room, no tv/electronics, early bedtime, behavior charts, etc.) What can I do to help end the sneakiness and bullying?
