All right all of you mamas out there. I need some advice please. My 3 yr.old son is constantly fighting with his 20 month old brother. It can sometimes be intentional or not intentional. I feel like I am constantly putting him in time out, because he has hurt his brother again. Yet I have never seen him do it with any other child. I feel like I am yelling non stop and I am just soo tired of it. You know I love my kids, but sometimes I just really do not like them. They drive me crazy. I feel like running away from home. What do you do as parents to prevent your children from constant fighting, weather its pushing, biting, smacking or pinching. It seems like the minute Cole wakes up he is on some kind of mission to bully his little brother. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am with ya, I have two boys that are two yrs apart. They used to fight non stop. I started getting down at there level and asking what the problems are. Then ask them to give you 3 suggestions to fix it (you can help them with that) and pick the one that would be best. It gives them problem solving skills that will leak to other parts of their life. I talked to at least five professionals about it and they all also said to stay out of it unless it gets physical. If you don't you will end up being a referee until they move out. Not to mention they wont have very good relationship. I would wait to stay out of it until they have the problem solving down though.
