8 year old doesn't listen to older brother


My daughter (8 yo) is obedient to me and my husband, but she doesn't listen to her older brother (12 yo) at all. Example: My son was replacing broken door knob for me, he said to my daughter, "Don't touch." "Please, don't touch the parts." but she didn't listen and drove him crazy. I don't get involved in kids' conflicts because I love John's parenting method. When they disturb family peace, I punish them both. What should I do in cases like this? I'm homeschooling them, so they are at home all day and I see things like this going on so often. Should I punish her only, because I don't see my son doing anything wrong? Thank you for any advice.
