It's full on here too and it sucks balls!

I try and have them get outside as there seems less fighting out there. I have resorted to putting a gate on Ali's bedroom to lessen the meltdowns and allow him so,e space to play without hassle.
It's been a trying time, it would be harder with a baby so massive :hug: to you Kk!

Fighting siblings

Fri Nov 30, 2012 6:30 am

Yes!!! Bailey has a broken foot at the moment thanks to his big sister!!!!
I try sending them outside a lot or time outs but I really don't know if it makes a difference (but at least I get a few minutes of them not fighting). Ruby gets really frustrated with Bailey and lashes out at him. Bailey isn't much better to be honest!

^ yep, I often send L upstairs to play in his room and shut the stair gate so J can't go up too :lol: I actually feel sorry for L, it's mainly J being the brat and provoking him and taking toys, etc :confused: I wonder at what age siblings enjoy each other's company?!!

Varies lol

Mine fight no end! I am sure the neighbours hear me screaming like a Banshee!!! (Sorry Annie!!)

To be fair, they are perfect 90% of the time, but the 10% always overides!!!

It's always Tahlis driving Jordy nuts...it's going to be so peaceful for me next year with Jordy at School and just me and Tahls at home. Although they will miss each other like crazy!!

You just need to be scarier K, they were angels when with me :tongue:

I honestly think it is just an attention thing and nothing more than that. J wants L's attention and his way of getting that is fighting with him. I do really think they enjoy being together and ach other's company though. You can tell that by the way they look out for each other. As annoying it is right now, I am sure it will pass as they'd get older.

I try to separate them when they're getting like that, or if it goes too far they go to the naughty cushion - which is actually just sitting in the hallway, they both hate it, so it works :lol:
