My two oldest children are 6 and 8. They fight constantly. To the point where we cant go places and no one wants them at their house. They yell, hit, argue, tattle, make faces, etc. I dont know what to do to get them to stop. I know siblings fight, but this is ridiculous. They make everyone around them so tense and stressed out, because its non stop. I have separated them into their own bedrooms, but they pound on each others walls to irritate, I have made them write apoplogy sentences to each other, time outs, taken away privelages. It doesnt matter. I cant take it any longer.

Please give me some advice, and/or things to try that worked for you. Please!!!

Make them sit indian style facing each other. Hands on each others knees and noses touching. They have to siy there for a set amount of time, BUT any arguing, headbutting, squeezing of knees starts the time over.


My mom did this to me and my brothers maybe 4 or 5 times ever.

My mom also threatened to tie our legs together and make us do chores as a team. Never did though.

when our girls get where they are fighting constant my dh and I will make them hold hands until they can get along. We will first have them sit in time out holding hands.
