Sibling psychosis!!!!!!

Hey girls, I definitely need some help. My two youngest are 11 months apart, ages 4 and 5. For some reason lately they have been constantly fighting and taddling on eachother. There's hitting and scratching and it's frankly driving me a little bit insane. I am 16 weeks preggo as well so i just think the combination of everything is stressing me out. And, unfortunately, at this time they are sharing a room so I can't even send them to different rooms .Do any of you other mommies go through this? What can I do to get them to stop? I've tried almost everything I can think of. If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it! Thanks!

Hi, my two are 19 months apart and act the same way. Mine are 6 1/2 and 8. I seperate them by putting them in seperate time out spots and tell them that everyone including myself needs a time out. Then after a few minutes I go get them and ask what we can do to fix the problem. The fighting never stops but you can at least take sanity breaks. Sometimes I will give them each a special secret job to help me out. That keeps them busy for a little while.

Hi my eldest 2 fight so bad and know each others weak spots too well . When all gets really bad I seperate and make them do jobs in silence ( divide and conquer ) . They then have something in common , hating me .
