They are at THAT age. All siblings go through especially if they are opposite sex. When I was their age, I did the same thing with my brother. He would chase me around the house and lift me over his head and throw me down on the bed lol. We always argued and we fought but it was normal to us. We never actually hurt-hurt one another but we had to get our frustrations out some how. They will get over it. When I turned 15-16, me and my brother mellowed out. Ever since then we have been cool around each other and even "loving". lol It will be ok. Good luck!

That sounds all too familiar! There is no manual, but in raising three boys (now 22, 17, and 9). The oldest is now out of the house, but my 17 and 9 yr olds fight like a cat and dog. I have to deal with them individually based on their unique personalities (one is sensitive, and the other is blunt and direct). Ironically, like others kids, they are loving most of the time when in public and would rip the hair off anyone that messed with their brother... One day, I suspect they will be best friends and remind them of this often!

I have the same issue. My daughter is 13 and she fights with everyone, not physically, I honstly think its the hormones in girls at this age. I wish they would come out with something to fix it, cause its driving me nuts!!!!

My 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son are the same. Honestly, I ignore them. I tell them I do not want to hear it. What I found is that they fight at home but are tight and loving in public. Which is exactly what I tell them. We were at our amusement park & I could not find my son, he should of been with older cousin.When I found him he was with that sister & they were holding hands running to a ride. So fight all day at home, I don't care, just know when to stick together.
