I have 3 kids and pregnancy with my 4th. My son is 10 and then my girls are 7 and 6 my baby is another girl. Now I know all kids fight but my girls have just gotten out of hand. They fight non stop from the time they wake up until the time they go to bed no joke! They fight with my son to but nothing compared to each other. I just can't imagine how its gng to be when the baby gets here more fighting and then with her once shes old enough? Any suggestions as to what I can do just to calm it down a bit since I know they are going to fight regardless. I've tried the whole don't talk to each other or play with each other, or even don't say nothing if u have notning nice to say, tried corners and sendn to seperate rooms.

Even tho they have tons of toys they really don't play with them and I don't allow video games on school days. Tv don't really watch cause my son plays baseball so not much time after school with homework, dinner them its practice and by time we get home time to get ready for bed. Every other wknd my oldest ones go with their dad my lil one it varies when he will pick her up. I was thinking maybe not taking them to practice and games since they look fwd to that to play with friends they have made

My girls are 10 and 6 and they go at it constantly as do my nieces who are 11 and 8. I think it's a fairly normal part of childhood. No suggestions but you're definitely not alone lol

I was expecting them to fight like this in their teens not this young lol I don't remember fighting that bad. It's non stop most of the time from waking up to gng to bed over everything! Just hoping to ease it up some I can't imagine how much worse it will be when baby gets here. I'm gng to go crazy lol

I have a SIS and 2 brother we didn't fight really till teen yrs and was never allowed to hit. Just crazy how bad my girls fight they fight with my son to a lot but I can handle it. My girls fighting have gotten out of hand. Maybe a day of being in time out all thru out the day every time they fight no matter who started putting them both in time out might help some.

lol I hear ya. I don't remember fighting much with my older bro or my sis, she's older, but my younger bro, omg! He's 2 years younger than me and I remember fighting with him a lot. I remember mom having to beat us with the straw end of the broom to break up one fight. He'd shoved my sister and man was I mad!
