Why are Kids Fighting?

Marissa - posted on 06/12/2012 ( 5 moms have responded )




Okay, my daughter is 11 and other one is 5 and they fight so much over little things, like the other day five year old took big sis's iPod and she screamed at her little sis, calling her "stupid" and "crazy" and little sister cried and accused big sister of being "So mean!" What can I do? I take away toys, ban tv, no friends can come over, but it continues. I have talks with them as well to be loving, but it's really driving me crazy!

Wait another 7 years and the older one can move out? Sounds like typical sibling behavior to me and if you find a cure.... you'll make big bucks marketing it.

Rewards chart? Your 11 year old should be doing one for chores anyways. Make her do chores every time this happens. I bet she'll hate it. Do one for your 5 year old too. It's just curiosity that she's taking things. My 3 year old does the same thing to her sister.
