Give them their own spaces. Do they share a room? If so get a room divider. If they have seperate rooms have an area in the room to just relax. Buy a bean bag chair for each kid, a little magazine holder for books and a place to play relaxing music. When they start getting out of hand have relax time before you send them to time out or whatever you do. A lot of the times this will disfuse the situation before it gets bad. Also if your son has a problem sharing take a magic market and on the bottom of his three favorite toys write his initials. This means that he doesn't have to share those three toys. Anything without his initials he has to share. Same with your other child. That worked like a charm at our house. He only got to change which toys were his favorites once a month too. That way there wasnt any "well Woody is my favorite toy NOW"
