It doesn't matter which one, but take one away and it's so peaceful. Throw that third one in there and it's all hell breaks lose. Anyone else have this problem?

  • I have that with just my two kids. Only one in the house and it's peaceful. But both under the same roof and it's Hell.

  • We stopped at two because we didn't want them to outnumber us. When they know they have an advantage, all hell breaks loose.

  • It's totally hit & miss here - there are times that my 4 get along and are quiet and get along, and there are days that just 1 or 2 (with the other 2 or 3 gone) drive me bonkers.

  • Oh, yes the oldest went to college in Aug - the old saying, two's company three's a crowd. Is so true. The two of them still argue but like having all three at home. Although, I cannot wait for Christmas and having the oldest home for three weeks - but than ask me again, at the end of the three weeks. LOL

  • I have that with two, lol. Either one on their own is an angel, it's hell with the two of them together.

  • Its funny that you asked this question. We have been having so many issues with our oldest that our neighbor took her to her house to stay with them this week to show her how easy she really has it at home & then our 12 year old has been bouncing from home to my good friends so all we have really had around all week is our 12 year old son & neighbor daughter. It has been so quiet & no fighting around her. I miss my girls but damn has the quiet time been nice with the husband & son <3
