I have a 7yo DD, 5 yo DS, 2 yo DS, all are lovey and affectionate creatures to me and each other. But, there are very often times when they are extremely competitive for my attention. After the boys were fighting over me tonight, I said to DH, "UGH! I am so tired of this! Why why why is it like this?". DH said that I make them that way . . . Too dependent on me. So, my question is 2 fold: how do you handle sibling rivalry and what sort of things does a mom do to make her kids " too dependent"?
