Hello Everyone I am new to the group. I need help w my two sons. I have a 15 yr old and a 6 yr old. All they do is fight and call each other names. I have tried to discipline them and nothing seems to work . I'm at my wits end, and so is my husband.

Hi there, it can be so tough when they fight. The youngest often trying to compete with the oldest and the oldest getting annoyed with the attention etc.. Did you say a 15 year old? It's unusual that he/she should fight with the 6 year old. I'd say it's probably to do with needing attention. These are some tactics I might suggest
1. Ask them to write down things they LOVE about the other.
2. Give the 15 year old special 'grown up time' that does not induce the 6 year old.
3. Boundaries. They each need clearly delineated boundaries that highlights different privileges etc.. So the 6yrold must know he/she is not the same as the older one. etc.
