My 5yr old and 2yr old constantly fight!!

My 5 yr old son has ADHD. And is always fighting and bullying my 2yr old daughter. I try time outs, separating them. But it just seems theres hardly any times that they actually get along and play well together. They are both so jealous of each other. And they are both shown plenty of attetnion. I know my sons ADHD is a factor in this but if anyone has any suggestions to help I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks

  • You know hun, all siblings fight, it is totally normal, but harp on this::: they are blood related and family, tell the 5 year old that is the big boy and should be lenient with his little sister because she is just a baby and he is not. There will come a rime when this will get easier, but for now you will have to play referee, and harp on the family concept until it sinks in!
