  • OMG yes, mine are 18 months apart. DD is 6 and DS just turned 5. They are constantly at it with each other. Especially if one has something and the other doesnt.

  • All.of.the.time. My kids are 5 and 3 and they love eachother one minute and HATE eachother the next. They can fight over anything at all. It is my biggest parenting challenge by far.

  • My 2 oldest, both almost 14 don't they are like best friends, but the 2 of them fight alot with my 9 year old and it drives me nuts. It's like they take turns picking at him, they don't physically fight but words may hurt more than physical contact sometimes. DH and I are constantly having talks with our teenagers on how to be nicer to our 9 year old.

  • Ugh, yes! Non stop bickering and it even escalates into hitting each other. I swear to you they are trying to drive me insane. My mom thinks it's hilarious. She says they are identical to my brother and I and it's payback. She's right!

  • Goodness, yes. They are 10 and 5 and argue, bicker and everything else. DRIVES ME NUTS!!! I kind of thought that since they are so far apart and girl/boy, they wouldn't have too much to argue about - BUT I'M WRONG!!!

  • They do fuss at each other daily, but for the most part...they get along really well.

  • 6 and 7 yo old girls who hate each other most of the day. I never see them getting along. Physical fighting all day long to the point of bleeding for these two. My whole day is spent as a referee.
