I am a working mom.. doing everything i can to help my triplets. I have 2 girls and one boy. The girls are becoming impossible. fighting and yelling everywhere we go. they are very jealous of each others and want the attention to themselves only. I feel they are very selfish and do not care about anyone else. I have tried many teamwork activities...many sharing activities.. i got their school involved.. but so far, am on the edge of a nervous breakdown...any clues ??

Hi there , I'm a dad of triplets 6.5 yrs old , identical boys and a girl . They are lovely kids but it seems , like you are saying, that they are seeking attention with silly behavior especially bed time . We try and have time with them individually but often it's such a busy time . They great when their on their own but when their all together act a lot different . I just want them to do a few little basic things when their told so we can get on and do the fun things but it dosnt seem to sink in ! ???

Thanks Amarylis.. Actually they are 7.5 years old.
I give each of them "me time" since they were 2 years old. The time when they are special and we go out for a walk or to do something each of them enjoys.
Each of them is engaged in music or art as they wish and like.. I get them everything they wish for ...

Today was a bad day with them, and i am trying something that i never ever tried before, which is Mom is Quite because she is sad from your behaviour.

I am not sure whether this will help or not.. but i decided to try..

how old are they? Also do any of them get special one on one mom time?
Something that makes each of them special like a song for each of them at bedtime. How you describe them seems like they are acting up for attention to me if they are little.
If they are older like preteen then it's normal sibling rivalry and I don't know if there is much you can do other than lay down rules on fighting.
