  • My boys are 2 years apoart and at that age I would seperate them and not let them play with each other. Once it wasn't allowed they wanted to be nice and play. Kind of reverse psychology. Just tell them they are not nice to eachother and you dont want them to get hurt and they cant play with each other for a little bit. They are going to fight sometimes, but the need their own space too, once they get a bit ilder though things will calm down for you, don't give up!

  • You don't? LOL!! Honestly, I am not so sure. Make sure they have their own private space. Keep telling them that they are siblings and need to get along. It is all part of being siblings. My brother and I still fight all the time. Could be cuz I can't stand the person he has become. Hopefully, they will get along better as they grow up. Good luck!!

  • Not sure what YOUR age has to do with any of this, but it's what some siblings do.

    I have two young ones who fight all the time too.

  • I would just keep them seperated. Tell your kids sence they can't stop fighting then they can't play,sit together. Do somethings with them to teach them to get along. Play games or do crafts together teach team work. I have a 2 yr and 5 yr that used to do that to me all the time. until their Dr. told me to teach them work and how to get along.
    You can't expect them to get along unless you teach them.
    Go to the Libary there some books on how to how handle these things. (I have to buy books on these kinds things and I am not ashamed to admit either.)

  • No offense but I don't believe that you are a teen mom, I think you're looking for drama. Your profile tells the story of the stiches reversed with your daughters. I suggest you find a hobby, it'll be way more fun and if you share THAT, you'll get positive feedback. Good luck.
