  • consistency is key. when the older one does something wrong (that shes knows better than to do) look in the eye and explain to her thats wrong, put her in timeout or take away a privlidge. then ask her when the punishment is over "do you know/understand why you got punished?" the younger one you'll just have to redirect.
