HOw do I get my daughter to stop being mean to her sister? If other children come around to play, she prefers to play w/the others and leave her behind. Its making me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Organise a game which will challenge older as well as younger children, one which has a goal to work towards but doesn’t have an obvious winner or loser (see examples below).
Sit down with them and explain the rules, telling them that good teamwork will get them to a goal which they can all enjoy. Try to avoid giving the lead role to the dominant sibling.
If you’re concentrating on building sibling relationships, you’ll already have a family Reward Chart. Let them know they will earn a reward point for working well together, too.
Supervise the game and make sure all the children are taking part and taking turns. Praise them at every turn and try not to react to minor mishaps!
