does it seem like

you constantly have to keep reminding your kids to quit fighting? I have a 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl and they play well together and love each other, but are constantly bickering. I can't stand it. I especially hate when my daughter starts screaming because it is over the top! So frustrating :(

  • Sounds like my 5 year old and 18 month old when it comes to their baby dolls. I swear it never ends! And they have numerous dolls, but feel the need to fight over the same one!

  • Yes, oh sweet yes! Mine are two years apart and they have a major love/hate relationship. Terribly competitive as well.

  • oh my goodness amybaby! Mine have started this new thing where everything is a race, like who can drink their milk fastest or who gets dressed the fastest, but the "loser" of the race always says "I wasn't racing" and then it starts an argument!

  • This is too funny. I am sitting here wishing my son had a brother or a sister so he could have someone to play with. I really do not like having an only child. I grew up with my sister and we were like 18 months apart, still to this day we are so close.

  • I so was going to ask this same question yesterday, but I didn't want to hear any self-rightoues mothers and their opinons. I've got four boys and one girl and I don't get it. I don't remember bickering with anyone that much when I was that age. I'm just glad I'm not the only one.
