He hit me!
Calling a timeout for the child who hit is just the first step - the anger and jealousy that caused the hit is what really needs to be addressed. Children are vying for time and attention (and often toys) - and there might not be enough of these things to go around. Admit this to the child, and ask to find ways together to work with what *is* available to meet their needs.
Young children cannot always be expected to share - before a certain age the concept simply has no meaning for them. Work with what the child is capable of, and find ways to meet each child´s needs within the limits of time and money.
Most importantly, let each child know that you love them individually. When a child is secure in this knowledge, other petty jealousies tend to fade.
