Sibling Rivalry Not Improving



Our daughter (26 months) has been hitting, scratching, biting etc her sister (almost 4.5 years old). At first we told her a firm no but now the incidents have increased and we put her in a room next to the kitchen with the timer set for 3 minutes. What happens now is that she spends many times a day in that room. Is this the right approach for a 26 month old?

I feel like I am refereeing a lot as her sister comes to me saying that the youngest one has been hitting, scratching, biting. Is this okay for their ages?

Thank you so much.
