If it's causing you that much stress, a family therapist is never a bad idea.  While they will not "fix" your situation by teaching your kids to get along (like others have said, at this point, they are going to fight, that's a given!), but they can help teach them skills to avoid some arguments, help you learn coping skills to lower your stress and anxiety, help you learn when to step in and when to let them work it out, and other things.  Many insurances have great therapy coverage, your just have to call and ask how it works!

Kids do fight a lot. One thing I have done with mine when they fight is I give them a warning if they don't stop they wash walls. I give them each a ragand they get to start on opposite sides of the hall way. My older two are almost 10 and 7. My younger one gets in the arguements sometimes too and another thing I will do is seperate everyone to diffrent spots in a room even if that means three spots on the floor away from each other faceing a wall. They decide pretty quick it is better to get along.

If you feel a therapist will help, definatly try it out, it could give you some good tips on what to try.

 If you feel it's not normal, I think trying a therapist is a good idea
