My boys fight all of the time!!! Also...my 7 year old only wants cheeseburgers and pizzas!!!! I cannot get him to eat anything healthy. There is always some sort of fight in my house, It can be about food, homework or just fighting. I'm losing it.

I have the same problem here with my boys, who are also 7 and 9. LOL It must be a boy thing. Anyway, they start out playing and end up fighting, I don't know how to stop it either. Any ideas? I just let them go until one of them starts to get to rough, usually the 7 year old. Then I step in and tell them to stop. Whay do they do when you talk to them about it?

My boys are 8 and 14 and they fight all the time too but they cannot be without each other either. I think you as the parent need to lay down some ground rules and if the rules are broken there has to be consequences. If my kids fight I take away their Nintendo for an hour or two or they cannot go outside to play...something like that. But like I said, my kids love each other to bits.
