I have a 2year old girl and a 11month old boy, at the moment they get along really well (except when my girl doesn't feel like sharing). I am just wondering if those of you with older children have any problems with them getting along, I am just preparing myself for the future =D

When my 17 month old discovered he gets a reaction out of his 5 y/o sister when he hits her or takes her toys he'll purposely do it from time to time. For the most part they get along just fine as long as the older sister feels like sharing and playing with the younger one.

My daugher is almost 2 and my son is 7 months old. She loves him to death. She gives him kisses, hugs him, feeds him, and gives him anything he needs. It's the cutest thing. I'm sure when they get bigger they will start to fight but for now they think each other are the greatest thing in the world.

my boy and girl get along just fine but with the usual bickerings and fighting over toys and little things but they got each other back, what i tell them is that they have only got each other so they should make the best of it, they call each other my brother,my sister so i believe thay should continue like taht,later on like someone said, they can only be best of friends.So dont worry yr head about it now you will deal with the situation when the time comes.

I was scared about the same thing! My brother and I are 4yrs apart, and we fought like crazy growing up! My mom told me "everyone is different"and she could see it in my kids. My son Benny, will be 6yrs old soon, and Alyssa is 13 months. He hugs, kisses, and tells her how beautiful she is, just about everyday! I try and coach Benny on how to teach her things, like how to play with cars, etc. So now he feels like he has some responsibility in raising her. He loves being "big brother" and showing her new things. He asks people to come over and meet his baby sister, at the park, like he's a proud big brother. They can tell how much he loves her. They will have their differences, and I will just have to keep coaching them, that they are family, and we need to be patient with each other! I try and give them both "special time" where me/my husband take Benny out somewhere by ourselves, to have fun, like to a movie, or to get a ice cream cone, go run an errand with me/dad.(just us) Alyssa gets to have playtime with mom/dad, or a walk in the stroller to the park, or exploring in the front yard. Good luck, and be patient, which in turn, will make them be patient with each other. You are their coach.

My 3 year old and 7 month old get along great. They are the same age difference as my brother and I. My bro and I got along great until he came to my school when we were 8 and 5. Then I wanted nothing to do with him until I turned 18 and moved away for university. However at 18 and 15 we became best firends and still are at 31 and 28.

I have a 19 month old son and a 8 month old daughter. For the most part they get along. My son has the habit of sharing his toys with her, but if she has something that he didn't give to her he will take it away from her. He has two older sisters, ages 4 and 9, and he gets along well with the oldest, but the 4 year old is a different story. They are always fighting and pushing each other around. I'm hoping that he won't be this way with his little sister also.

I have a 6yr gap between my two kids and they fight all the time! So I'm so sorry to tell you this but be ready for years of fighting. I thought they would get along great but I might as well had them one right after the other because my youngest can get the oldest down to his age level. (16 & 10) Best of luck and learn to take deep breaths!!
