Niece keeps hitting my kid

So for a little background information… my mom and niece moved in with me and my family after my sister passed away to live in a better school district.

My niece who is (12) keeps hitting my son (5). When I get mad about it and try to discipline her my mom try’s to step in and defend her saying “it didn’t hurt him.” Well my point isn’t that he is hurt or not it the point that she shouldn’t be putting her hands on him like that period.
I’m at my wits end and we are not even halfway through the school year. It happens so often I lost track. I just don’t want my baby boy to be scared of her or being in his own home. What should I do?? :sob:
