I have two boys single mom my boys fight all the time. There is nothing you can do kids fight it gets old. What i started doing is i make them go outside and fight so i dont have to listen to it. They can not come cry to me if they do they both go to their rooms then. Its hard but they do it to get your attention even if we give them enough. Sit them down have a family talk that helps.

My boys are 7 and 3, they fight like cats and dogs on a daily basis.  I don't worry about it so much because I remember how my brother and I used to fight (5 years difference).  My brother is one of my best friends now, and I think that it is just how siblings are with each other a lot of the time.  Kids learn boundaries from their relationships with their family members, they will push the limits with each other, but in the end they will learn a lot from it.



I don't allow them to cause serious physical harm to each other without punishment, but I don't get in the middle of their petty arguements (I would be doing nothing else if I did!).  I make them decide together on activities, movies and such.  If they can't come to an agreement, we don't do anything.  Maybe the bigger issue is teaching them how to communicate in a more productive manner...something that I am still working on!

13 is not a nice age as far as attitude are concearned but trying to force them to bond can be disaaterous, and a new teen needs their space, some things i have done is invovle myself and the boys in an activity that makes them to work together, and hitting is not tolerated, we have family meetings once a week with family night , and we sit on floor in a circle and we each tell each other what may be botherring us and we all have to say one positive thing toward each other.
