How can I get my children to stop fighting

My oldest DD lives with me, my youngest DD lives with her dad, so how can I get them to stop fighting, I mean I know sticks and stones make break bones but word DO hurt! If they don't stop I am afraid they are going to stop talking to each other forever.

  • If you figure it out PLEASE tell me! My kids are 4 and 7, both live with me and my husband and STILL fight like two bitch cats in heat.

    On the other hand, let anyone try to pick on them and they close ranks against the "outsider" and it's no holds barred.

  • At some point, they might find their common ground and start getting along, but you cannot force it.
