  • I think you just have to ride it out until they’re old enough to understand they don’t have to be squabbling all the time

  • It’s healthy to have a little rivalry

  • It happens in almost every family especially when they are close in ages

  • it is perfectly normal and healthy!

  • I think its normal and all you can do is not make too much of a big deal about it.

  • My two year old and four year old are at each other all the time! Drives me insane!

  • Lots of time outs !!

  • I have the smae problem with my 5 and 4 year old.
    But when ones not home the other one misses them..
    I think it will proberly last for ever..

  • My kids seem to fight one minute, and are besties the next minute. I just let them go and they sort their problems out

  • My kids fight all the time – I am used to it

  • I actually think its just kids – my two fight often. People just tell me its normal

  • my 2 girls are always fighting too, it drives me crazy, but i remember my sister and i at the same age, we were the same, i figured it is just a stage they have to go through.

  • maybe find out what they are fighting about and maybe talking and finding out why they are acting that way with each other communication is the key

  • i think it is what kids do they will grow out of it

  • Mine do the same at 5 and 3 and have no idea to solve this and wonder if i fought with my sister like they do
