I have a 5 1/2 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. Apart they can be angels and together all they do is fight or pick on each other. They never listen and can be disrespectful when together! I'm at my wits end and am even getting pains in my stomach all the time from the stress!!!! Any advice? Thanx!

Omg they NEVER STOP! This morning I made them watch me do my makeup for work and sit on my bed since it was the only way I could watch them and them NOT kill each other! All they needed to do was get ready for camp! I've had people do the same thing in markets which is why I don't bring them anymore! I can't take them anywhere! I had to leave my gf at dinner the other night cause they wouldn't stop! It's heartbreaking!!

My sister and I gave my parents a lot of heck. My dad was not one to stand for it so when we did start in he would tell us if we were going somewhere that if we did not stop he would turn around no matter if we were a mile off and go home. We stopped then and there because we knew he meant it. Our mom had a harder time with us but she would get us to stop. We are 3 years apart in age and though we are not as close as I would like to be even now, we get a long so much better as adults. I have not had to worry about my kids who are seven years apart and a boy and girl. They found one time at Xmas break when he was 3 and she was 10. Not sure why it started or what but that was the only time. The rest of the time they got along very well and they were also close too. I have no cures but my advice is to separate them when they get going at each other and let them cool off. Get them involved in an activity they can do together. My mom and grandmother got us to do arts and crafts with them a lot and I can remember we had a lot of fun because we each did what were were able to do.

They don't fucking stop do they? Somedays I am gonna rip my hair out. I actually have other parents stop me in the grocery store, and tell me it will be ok, and they know what I am going through. When you find the magic cure, let me know.
