If your children start fighting with each other (like not to the point of actually hurting each other), do you let them fight it out, or do you break it up?

Sure, they are allowed to argue/fight with each other...right up until the point that it annoys me.  Then they better knock it off.

 My kids argue all the time.. I interfere if they're yelling at the top of their lungs... but other than that I prefer them to try and work it out on their own.

If they ever got physical with one another, I'd break it up.  They never have though.  This may have to do with them being Boy/Girl -

The baby doesn't argue yet.. haha

                         


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

It really depends on what they're fighting about.

I started thinking about it this morning when my two started arguing and fighting.

I usually step in when I get tired of the yelling. As long as no nasty names are being used and they aren't hurting each other, I feel they need to learn to work it out themselves.

They are 2.  I let them fight unless it comes to hitting, then I will intervene.
