I dont know what to do. I always thought when I was pregnant that they would be great friends...I knew they would fight here and there or argue, but these fights are crazy. One will have a toy that the other wants, and the other one will literally claw at his face, his eyes...he looks like he was in a boxing ring. I am soo hurt by this I feel so bad that he would do that to his brother (A would do it to G). However, at other times G pushes A clean across the room and knocks him back onto his head, legs flipped over, back twisted. It is awful. I feel like Im reffing a really bad unfair wrestling match. I feel like they are going to begin to hate eachother, that the damage this does to their feelings is going to be irreversable...am I overreacting? How do I fix this? What do I do when it happens? Today A scratched G's eye so bad, I yelled NO really loud and gave him a timeout on the couch and he was crying too...I almost cried...G was screaming in pain....and in hurt....it is awful. Then in like 2 minutes its all over and we are all hugging in the rocking chair while they fall asleep for their nap...it is SO hard. I dont want to take sides with them. I spend most of my time alone with them as their dad works a lot and is now out of town on business for 3 weeks....any advice is appreciated. Even just to tell me that your kids fight or fought too and they still became friends later in life will help...I have no one to talk to about this we live far away from family and I dont even have any friends here....thanks. They dont really talk either, just sounds and random words so communication is a big thing as well-like today they FLIPPED out at the grocery store because I walked past the strawberries and thats what they wanted and couldnt tell me which equalled a scream fest....I never thought parenting would be easy but holy cow it is difficult.
