any moms with children 2 years apart or less in age?
Do any of you have children that are 2 years apart in age or less?
Do yours fight about everything? My girls are 2 years apart in ages(almost exactly), they fight over everything. I have tried getting them the same toys so they don't fight. I have tried, time outs, corner time, talking to them, spanking them(not a big fan of spankings for every little thing), taking all their toys away. I am getting at my wits end about what to do now. I am thinking about getting them each a large toy box, painting their names on them and thats what they have to put toys in, and no one is allowed to play with the others toys unless they ask, and its ok'd by me.
I know that when I was a kid, my older brothers( they are exactly 2 years apart) did the same thing, and my husband and his brother are just over 2 years apart in age, and they fight over everything.
Ack!!! I am just not sure what to do. When they are not fighting, they are well behaved children and do well in school. I get compliments on how well behaved they are if we are out in public(hey, I guess I can be glad that they only misbehave at home!!). They do chores without being told, and are all over great kids. I just don't know how to get the fighting to stop!
No bashing please.
