How bout the 12 yr old stops coming over. She doesn't need to be watched. Then say no to fridays because you can't. You can help your sister but you've become her crutch and she's not holding the father accountable.
The best way we have handled this issue may seem extreme but if you can't treat something or someone nice you can't play with them. Our youngest went through a spell of constant hitting and we made it clear she was not allowed to play with her older sister until she could be kind.

I've never given and of my LO's chunks of food and I'm hearing about a lot of people doing it. He gnaws down really really hard. It's painful if he gets a finger. He's really good at chewing and loves doing it. Last night he had a piece of sweet potato in his mouth for about 5 minutes just moving it from side to side and chewing away. It's been so long since we've had a bb in the house I feel lost.
