I have tried several approaches with mine. I have a 13 yo boy, 11 yo girl and 7 yo stepdaughter. The two youngest are the worst. I have made them say five nice things about each other after each fight. I have made them sit on the couch or in a chair and hold hands. I have made them separate and not be able to play together. I have made them move cinder blocks from the front yard to the back. Inevitably, they still fight. I know this isn't very encouraging, I just want you to know that you are not alone in this one.
