I have a two and a half year old daughter and a set of seven month old twin who are just starting to furniture walk unfortunatley Every time they get up my two year old keeps pulling them down and dropping them on the floor, which then starts a screaming fit. What can I do to get her to stop she doesn't seem to like listening to me, and the fighting is driving me up the preverbial wall.

I second what Alizabeth said.  My neice and nephew act up all the time for their mom.  When they come to my house, they know the rules.  If they break them, they sit on time out (number of minutes they are years old).  It works.

Time out. The time starts when she is sitting and starts over if she gets up. When she gets up put her back. It will be hard and will take a long time but keep with it. After 2 min of sitting tell her what she did wrong and tell her to say sorry to the baby and to give a hug and kiss. Watch an epp of Super Nanny to see it in action. After a wile it will work. Also make sure she is still getting alone time with you.
