my 4 year old and 2 1/2 year old sons are always fighting everyday, and for the majority of each day. They tease eachother, hit eachother, scream at one another, and the list goes on and on!! i mean i know that this is normal and all kids fight sometimes, but i just feel like they do it too much! i would love to hear if anyone has ways that they deal with this with their children...thanks for reading.

I have four kids.. ages 8, 6 1/2, 3 1/2, and 1. The 6 yr old and 3 yr old fight constatly like this too. It starts from the time they wake up until they go to bed.. some days my 8 yr old gets in it too. I have tried everything and even scheduling stuff like craft time and all that and then they just fight over who gets what crayons or who is sitting where. It is not just you, I promise! I can only hope they grow out of this (and soon)

Try planning some activities that they can do together (like crafts at the kitchen table) and some alone time each day for each of them (free time play in their bedrooms). Also do activities that you are doing with them so you can show them how you want them playing with each other.
My 4YO and 2 YO also fight but they also play together. Sometimes they just need their own space.
