  • When my kids were younger they fought like yours do. When they were as little as yours, they'd get separated and each put into their own time-out spots. I'd let them out when they'd agree to be nice to one another. At that age I also used a lot of positive reinforcement and rewards when they were playing nicely and getting along. As they got older I encouraged them each to have their own activities and hobbies to cut down on the competition and rivalry. They are teenagers now and actually get along great.
