Depending on their ages... If one starts the fight, and the other did not react in a poor way in retaliation, the one that started the fight is other child's maid/butler for one hour (Increases when felt necessary) Honestly it's a punishment that gets them to interact and enjoy each other.

Sometimes I make them sit down and hold hands for ten minutes and in order to get out of time out they need to give each other hugs. But they have to mean it, pretty soon they're laughing

Seperate them when they fight. What works for me is I give each of my kids lil projects that only they can do some are for them to do together and others are for then to do apart. For Example sorting the laundry I have one pick out all the color clothes and the other the white clothes and the other the darks just gt them distracted from eachother for a while usually that helps.

If they have time to fight, then they have time to do chores. I do give them a little time to see if they can work it out on their own first. I have my kids do my chores when they are fighting. They can do things that I usually don't have time to do, wash windows, scrub the floor, wash the floor boards, etc. This is a love and logic principle which really works.

well For one never take ones side over the others and if they fight the ones fighting put them both in time out for about 10-15mins with them being totally silent no matter who started it this shows them that both of them were wrong for starting it and keeping it up. Then if they make it out of time out then sit them down and explain to them what they did was wrong no matter who started it just so they know you can try it Good Luck and God bless you!
