Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get a 3 yo and 2 yo (boys) to stop hitting and wrestling each other? They sometimes (rarely) will play nicely together, but most of the time it’s war.

  • When I read your concern, my immediate thought was that perhaps the kids are jealous of each other and are vying for your attention. My suggestion is to have a time each week where u just do something special with one of your children, just u and your child. It could just be for an hour. U could play at the park together or go on a bus ride… while your partner or relative or friend minds the other toddler at home. Then the next week it is the other child’s turn to have u all to himself. All the best.


  • Get used to it! My kids were shocking too. Even now, aged 29 and 26, they’ll still have a bit of a go. It gets better but doesn’t disappear completely


  • As soon as they can I would suggest putting them on Martial Arts, where they learn to control what they’re doing and respect the other.


  • Have something distracting ready for when they start, preferably something that will keep their hands busy – like bubble mix.
