  • They are too young to play cooperativley or share with each other right now. Sit with them and show them 'gentle' touch, etc. Supervise them closely so there is minimal grabbing of toys, etc.

  • Separate and redirect. Keep in separate play areas with diffferent toys, then switch after 15-20 minutes.

  • You are going to have to play referee for a while, instill in them the importance of blood and they are brothers forever.....harp on this but to avoid so much fighting now because they are so young re direct their attention to other things...
