1) set up a static IP to your sisters device/pc. Routers determine who is who and what to do via local IPs it assigns to everything that connects to it. Every time you connect to your router it assigns you the next available IP(starting with x.x.x.2 and going up to x.x.x.255). In order for your router to always know which device is your sisters you have to assign her device a static IP. This can be done with your router via a static route, or more reliably done on your sisters device via her network settings. Assign is something like x.x.x.200 or so. X denotes the rest of your local ip which varies depending on your router set up. Googling how to set up local IPs will probably yield more informative details than what I could here.
2) Once you set up a static IP you can start defining rules via your router. Because your router always knows your sisters device via her manually assigned IP it will never get confused and start messing with other devices. You can set up rules to block services, usually in the form of ports. Block ports 1 all the way to 65534. You can assign this rule to a time schedule based on your routers clock. This is where it gets a bit tricky(at least for me, my router clock sucked). Again, this varies wildly from router to router, need details(like your router model).
However, I advise talking it over with your parents first. First off, your router controls your internet and messing with stuff can ultimately lead to messing shit up. If you're not familiar with this stuff you won't be able to diagnose problems that may arise. Things may work at first... but maybe half a year later stuff isn't working right. Bam, daylight savings has messed up your schedule and caused her internet to cut off at weird times. If you're not familiar you might be sitting there wondering what the hell happened. Some routers make all of this stuff way more complicated than others as well. Secondly, ultimately it isn't up to you whether you should have complete control over your sisters internet, it's your parents. What happens if your sister is emailing a project to her teacher when her internet cuts out? Explain to them the situation and tell them there are means to control her internet beyond good faith that she's apparently abusing.
