I don't think it's right to just tell her to hit back. Idk. I don't think it's really teaching anything. The real problem here is that no one is disciplining the cousin for hitting. So the mother doesn't let anyone else discipline, but just sits there & watches while he hits her? Yea, that shouldn't be allowed at all. I would be talking to her, or just say in a loud voice I'm going to put him in time out. lol
