  • Your little one is simply beginning to express her independence. Temper tantrums can be ignored, just make sure she is safe when expressing herself. Have your 5yo ask her sister is she can pick her up. This allows respect for each persons feelings, wants and needs.

  • it can be very normal, could she be frustrated , is it when she wants something and u are unsure of what she wants?

  • there has to be some type of disipline to show her that her actions are not ok. espicially with your 5yr old. pretty soon the 5yr old will start tryin to do it to because they see the other sibling getting away with it so they want to also. start with a time out and if that doesnt work a lil tap on the hand doesnt hurt anything but their feelings, eventually they get the consept of concequence for their actions. believe me i know, im a mother to 4 1girl 17, and 3 boys 11,9,and4.
