My 9 & 11 year old girls are fighting so much, I don't know what to do anymore. They act like they hate each other which breaks my heart. They do have good moments, but the fighting and being mean to each other keeps getting worse. I know they are even arguing on the bus to school. Any advice on how to handle this fairly??Answer Question

Sisters have been fighting like this since the beginning of time, it is normal as long as you intervene and harp on the fact that they are blood relatives, and no physical harm is being done, emphasize on the family unit and the why behind their fighting being counter productive. My daughters were only a year apart, and they fought like cats and dogs, but when it came time to stand up for each other they did and as adults are the best of friends, they will be ok.
