  • put em in a boxing ring and let em duke it out :) lol j/k. I dunno, maybe it really is something they need to settle between themselves...get the bad air out.

  • Umm, they won't..Myself and my sister fought all the time until I moved out. Now that my sister has finally matured, we get along great. I really don't have any advice, but good luck in figuring it out.

  • I have 7 and 9 year old daughters, and they love each other to pieces, but fight like hell too. I'm so sick of trying to sort out their nitpicking arguments that I just let it go. When they're taking it too far--when there's screaming, crying, or physical violence--I just separate them, make each one go to her own room for quiet reading time. Sometimes that's what they need, a break from each other. I had 2 sisters and we fought all the time too...I think it's pretty normal.

  • When my kids really start fighting and picking at each other I make them sit on the couch for 1/2 hour holding hands. hehe. Works like a charm!
