  • OH MY GOD!

    I am such a dimwit - I just read your question and didn't see the "not" part.

    I thought you were asking how to make toddlers fight - like a dog fighting thing but with toddlers.

    Sorry I don't have the answer - but I've gotta get my eyes checked, I thought you were a psycho there for a second! LOL!!!

  • They will fight. There's not really much you can do... either their personalities clash, they want the same toy, or they just don't like each other. My son and his cousin LOVE each other, but they fight all the time! (My son is 2 1/2)

  • One trick that has worked with my almost three year old twins is this:

    If I can figure out who had a toy first I give it back to him and then say to them "when I say ding-ding-ding" it's his turn with the toy.

    If I can't figure out who had it first, I let whomever has the toy to have a turn and do the same "ding-ding-ding" thing.

    Specific praise when they are playing nicely will also go a long way.

    When there's hitting, kicking, biting involved, that calls for a time out, preferably in another room. The time sitting for the offender will send the message plus the time apart will benefit both.

  • Ding Ding Ding may not be an appropriate noise for these two... lol...
