    Dear Savanahl, I am sorry to hear you are going through such an ordeal, I was reading your profile and I hope your other children didn't give you this much trouble. read more

    I have two children who are very similar in age to yours. Whether or not the older child is going to listen to you depends on what kind of structure you have set up for her in regards to discipline up to this point. If she's been allowed to just do whatever she wants then suddenly trying to get her to behave is going to be rough sledding. That being said, if you want her to stop yelling at her brother, then every time she does it, there are going to have to be consequences, like a time out, for instance. It's exhausting.

    Does she like playing with him? If so, then the punishment should be that she doesn't get to play with him.

    And then, some kids are just tough to manage and very little seems to work. Ultimately, I think, the more structured you are in your response and the more consistent in your response, the more likely you are to be successful.

    Where else is your 2 1/2 year old seeing or hearing others yell at each other?  Children at her age only mimic what the see.  Find out who s doing the yelling and fix that first.  If you are yelling at her to stop she will yell at the baby to stop.  There are other ways to discipline a child that does not include raising vices.  There are many hubs about this topic and you can go into the parenting forum too for help.

    I would try "redirecting."  Initiate another behavior that is positive to a toddler, such as jumping, or clapping.  Then, if the baby is making noise, you could model what you want, such as:  "Why are you making noise silly baby?" (In a soothing voice, of course).  A two and a half year old is also a baby.

    Separate them....and engage her/him in age appropriate activites apart from her younger brother.

    Rule of thumb: when a 2-year old is screaming, whether it is a full blown solo tantrum, or at a sibling or you, most of the time he or she is expressing frustration. read more

    Hi savanahl, dealing with tantrums or screaming toddlers is no piece of cake.  I know how you feel.  In your specific case, you need to keep telling her it's not nice to yell at babies.  But you inspired me to write a Hub about for everyone.  Hopefully, you will find the tips in my Hub useful.

    lead by example, show her how he like to be spoken to andinclude her more in interacting with him.  Oh how your brother loves when you do this for him etc She is too young for time out and doesnt have the comprehension for much else.  She may be jealous or just have no tolerence for him if he cries or whinges etc
