HELP! Stop the arguing...

I have an issue I need your advice on. I have a 2 year old boy and a 6 year old boy they each have their own room but my 2 year old loves to jump around and just about trash my 6 year olds room whenever he's in there and I get a lot of yelling and screaming on both their parts and my 6 year old constantly yelling "Get out, get out, get out of my room" as my little one runs about throwing everything about. I do step in and pull my 2 year old out and tell him no but he runs right back. I distract that work only for a little while sometimes... I've even had my 6 year old block the door from the inside which saves him from brother but makes me nervous in case of fire or something. Anyone have suggestion on how to handle this situation and so the screaming stops...LOL! please?

Do you have any baby gates you can put in his room?  I am betting part of the allure is that big brother does not want him to go in there.   Time outs seem to be the other way.   Does big brother play with him outside of the room?  Perhaps they can play in the little ones room.   There could be yet another expensive solution and that is buy a door for his room that opens halfway that can be locked on the inside while having the top open so you can see inside.

I'm going through this with my boys 10 and 3. Just brotherly love. Not much you can do. It happens

Let them scream. Spuriously. They have to get along by them self- for their future with others. Also, if you decided to do something - do it all the way. You did half work :) sorry for being direct- my Middle East behavior :)

Lol, I'm sorry to laugh but you just described my own almost 2 year old little man too!

I though I was the only one - ;)

Half work how so? I'm asking honestly... how would you handle it?
