  • All the time. My boys are at it constantly, but what do ya do? Lately they have been cooped up in the house cause it's been rainy out and they can't ride bikes or scooters or play on the trampolene and get all that energy out. I usually tend to make em get up and take it outside if they are at it like that or separate em in house... Each in their own room or one in the living room and one in a bedroom, cause they will drive me batty. And the fear of no computer time and playstation time works wonders for me.

  • Buy them some boxing gloves and make a huge punching bag and hang it somewhere in the house or outside and let em have it..Create something for them to drain their energy and frustrations out on.

  • I make my dd spend more time with her brother if they fight more, so more fighting=more time together. And CONSTANTLY have to remind them how to speak to one another, and so on. Constant reminders. IT's finally working a bit. I guess some kids just don't get along, I'm not sure what to say, but I told my kids if the keep it up, I'm taking them to family counseling. So they've been pretty good lately.
