If one just is poking annoyingly at the other the words to use are "hey the two of you cut that out." NOT "Hey Ellie cut that out"
The answer to "MOM she is bugging me" is "That sounds unpleasant" Not "Stop bugging your sister"

My question is not so much about how to respond when the younger one slaps the older one (which happens about every hour or so at our house), but rather, what things folks do to encourage family members to seek harmony? Are there things people conciously do to create that kind of atmosphere/energy in the home?

I do this as well, but that doesn't always ensure perfect harmony between children who live together and deal with eachother day in and day out.
