  • If she does it on a regular basis then you need to nip it in the bud. If it is just a somtime thing. Then your ok. Children with siblings often react much diffrently then children their age who are only children.

  • Her response could have been because she thought what you did to her was unfair...The little one took her chip and of course she showed her dislike for the little one doing it and then you took them away. In this case I think it is normal, she was wronged and them punished for her eyes. Like what was said above, if it happens all the time it might be a problem, but if it only happens with something like this it is normal
