  • I would stop slaps all around. And have punishment for who ever hit has to do what they other says for like 10 minutes or whatever the task is.

  • It is a phase, my son used to bully his older sister when he was a baby. They are 5 yrs apart, now they are 4 and 10 and they love each other. Just remind the older one that the younger one is too little to understand much. Also give the older one more credit for being a big girl and understanding that way you keep the jealousy and rivalry out. It will pass....hang in there!

  • you will NOT make them be friends, they're 7 years apart! I wasn't friend with my little sister who's 5 years younger them me until i was 18. they're always going to have that separation. They will get over it you just have to be patient, and stop the hitting between them!
