I need tips on how to help my 6 year old daughter and my 4 year old daughter to get along

They do love each other but do not get along most of the time. They even hit each other. Not to bad but its the point you know. Please what are your tips?

Thank you Lindsay. I tend to have them do a lot together because they ask but will try to have them do seperate things. My oldest is in soccer maybe I will have her stay home with me for no on for practices.. My girls are 18 months apart also.
Rebecca: My girls share a room also. Thank you

i have two girls aswell and they are two years apart. i found that after they started sharing a bed room together they started to bond more and play better together.

Mine are 18 months apart, and while they love each other and play good a lot of the time, there is still fighting. What we've found is to let them do separate things and they tend to miss each other. I'll let one go spend the night with my mom and keep the other one home. They both enjoy the one on one time but after about a day, they start asking for each other again. It works for a little while anyway! =)

Mine do the same thing they are 3 and 8 I think this is just a normal thing they go through and I am hoping it passes soon my youngest just walks up and punches her sister in the face or wherever she feels like it but at other times they snuggle on the couch or wherever they feel like it and watch a movie its funny good luck. If fighting really bad I separate them and put them in different rooms.
