I have 2 kids a girl and a boy aged 6 and 3 respectively. They're always bickering and fighting. How do i cope with the sibling rivalry and jealousy? I don't have so much energy for them and they're on holidays now.....how not to lose my head?

honestly it won't ever go away lol......my kids are 11 and 8 and they still bicker and fight only now the fists come out haha.  My mother toldl me that it only gets worse as they get older but that they still will look out for each other and be best friends when they grow up.  I hope so because now they don't like each other very well.

I make my kids have a time out from each other.I send them to there rooms.I have a girl and boy too.And yes the bickering is annoying...one minute that hate each other ,the next minute laughing and watching t.v togther.It works all the time.They just need a break from one another.I make them stay in there rooms for about an hour each.By that time they forget what they were arguing about.I tell them...OK time for some alone time...LOL.

Thanx a bunch Tammy. Thats funny. Can't wait for that time when they grow up cos sometimes i can't stand it. They're always reporting each other, sometimes i don't even respond. Not even thinking of having more kids cos meeen.....................
