  • Yes if you figure it out let us all know. I have days that my two girls (6yr and 2 yrs) seems like that is all they do.

  • My two daughters go at it all the time....I dont get in the middle of it unless it gets out of hand. They are 3 and 5 so they get into each other stuff alot and we work on talking it out but most of the time they roll around screamming at eah other!

    If you do figure it out bottle it out and sell it!!LOL

  • My mother once stood us (my younger brother and I) in the middle of the living room right in front of her and told us that if we wanted to fight she wanted us to do it right there in front of her. We were about five and three almost four at the time and we were so shocked we never fought again. I don't know why it worked at all but for some reason just her crazy backwards insane response threw us off and we just didn't fight anymore after that. I wish I knew if that would ever work again but I'm terrified it'll just backfire with my two boys and they'll just and up beating the snot out of each other.

  • Wish i knw myself - my 4 1/2 and 5yr old even 2yr old are always fighting - if i were to do the same thing that anonymous said about fight in front of me they probably will go at it lol. but no matter what i have tried has never ever work. But i always talk to them and have them apologize to each other shake hands and hugs they do - but works for good 30mins bfre they start fighting again. But i havnt given up. My SO just goes "boys will be boys" BUT still ... but any1 ever finds out how -- let me know.

    by the way .. daisy521 love ur comment. lol
