This is a classic case of sibling rivalry. Just when your older daughter thought that she was king of the castle, along came her baby sister.There are a number of ways of dealing with this problem, but giving her a hiding is not one of them. This will only make her feel more isolated and angry.Ignore as much of her bad behaviour as you can. Try to divert her attention when she starts to perform by showing her something interesting.Losing the audience has a positive effect usually so walk out of the room if she starts to perform.Don't rush in the minute she starts to fight and don't question her about who started any fight which may occur. When you intrevene be very decisve. Speak firmly and do not plead with her to stop. Just say 'Stop!' in a clear loud voice.If she does not listen immediately send her to her room and close the door. She is not to come out until she stops crying or stops her tantrum.
