I'm a mother to 3 boys and one on the way. Their ages are 6 1/2, 5 1/2, and 2. Also my husband came from a family of 5 boys, so he knows how this goes well. Sometimes boys just need to wrestle, its a boy thing us girls or mothers may never understand. It doesn't stop when they get older either, just beare I've heard some good stories.. I've been advised that as they get older and I'm no longer stronger than them, to just try and get them to take it outside where they can't break anything. But never get in the middle of it or else I"ll be the one hurt. lol Boys will be boys, and wrestling here and there is okay. However we do have set rules, as is no punching or kicking and avoiding certain areas. But with dad around, he joins in just as much as they do. Good luck!

I feel your pain!!! Ive tried time-out, rewards for good behaviour and seperating them. Nothing seems to work. They also say things to each other that they KNOW will make the other one scream...
It really gets to me. I think the only thing that has worked a little bit is keeping them busy - with anything lol If im cooking, they help / watch, if im folding washing, they help.
Things like that, also, I like to encourage them to do artwork or to play outdoor games.
But no matter what I do they still continue to fight. Good luck Khansa, I hope to get some advise on this subject too.

Hi! I always use time-out, and when you see them fight, do something. Your voice tone is very important.
