My boys constantly fight!!! I tried to let them duke it out but one of my boys will not fight back.
He is much bigger and is so afraid of hurting him. I don't know what to do with these 2.
Long story short : my DS likes to make comments and then he lets it go.
Dss: is a bully and pushes buttons to piss DS off. Then he hits DS bc he knows DS won't do anything.

Adding ages. They are 14 and almost 13

Any ideas?

My girls were the same way.  As a matter of fact, they are 20 and 23 and when they are together, it still can get pretty raw.  I learned a long time ago to tune it out and let them work it out on their own.  My girls are very, very close, best friends.  But they still argue.

I didn't try and stop them, I gave them boundaries though, to keep my sanity.  No arguing in the car, in public or when I'm ready to go to sleep.

I would not be encouraging the fighting for starters... GL

sounds like time for a spray bottle?  jk...   i had three brothers.  i don't know how any of us made it out of that house alive.  between wrestling around and practical jokes?  yikes.  i think maybe that was the key?  they were all wrestlers and into martial arts.  they could fight without hurting someone.  why don't you get the little guy into something like that so that he learns how to use his body, protect himself, and certainly not to hurt others.  it sounds like normal boy behavior to me.  they have to have some sort of testosterone release.

so what is the punishment for Dss when this happens?  if there were more consequences for his bullying, then maybe it would stop...but to stand there and do nothing, tells your son YOU won't stand up for him....poor kid

We have done everything.
Taken his phone, grounded him, made him sit at the kitchen table all day etc..

I don't just do anything about it. I don't know what else to do!

sounds like it's time for a child behavior specialist, if you can't figure out what to do...you can't let your other son suffer
