I have a 6yr old girl and a 4 yr old boy. They fight non stop and it is getting worse. We thought that my 4yr old gave her a black eye last night after punching her in the face. We were told to let them fight it out and let me tell you bad idea it got worse. I don't know how much is normal or when enough is enough. They are really hurting each other and have started to break things. They don't see that kind of stuff at home. They don't get spanked often. So now the rule is if you hit each other I'm going to hit you. Yes this is probably not the best idea but we have tried everything. I'm hopping that it will scare them and they will stop. They each got a spanking last night after their fight and first thing this morning my 4yr old got another for smacking her in the face in the car. I guess she leaned to close to him and he didn't want her to so he smacked her. I'm so lost and what to do about it. Please help.Answer Question

Sounds like my 10 year old daughter and 6 year old son. They fight like that. I don't know how to stop it. I have tried making them hold hands after fighting. I've tried grounding them and etc.. It is pissing me off. My main concern is my daughter hurting my son. She is about 65lbs and my son is so tiny and he isn't even close to weighing 40lbs. I just send them outside now. They will usually carry on out there too.
