I am the mom of two newborns (twins-a aboy and a girl), and a one year old litlle girl. I love my kids but I would trade you in a heartbeat.

I have twin 4 yr old boys and a 3 yr old son. The bicker back and forth all the time. I just started a chart with them for them "being a good boy" They get a star for sharing, saying please and thank you, helping etc, they loose a star by hitting, yelling, pushing, saying no when they are told to do something, saying bad words etc. Every friday if they have 25 stars then we go to the dollar store and they pick out a toy. I take each child that earns a prize that wk to the store alone to pick it out. That way I dont have to hear the one that wasnt such a good buy screaming because he wants a new toy. It is kind of motivating them to want to fight less. It actually calming our fights.

Mine are 4 and 2 so I kinda know how you feel. When mine fight I make them go to their bed until they can be nice... sometimes we do this 3+ times a day... Good luck and if you find a cure for the fighting let me know.
