My 14 year old boy hates his 13 year old sister and she feels the same. We have massive arguments everyday. Me and dad have tried every possible solution but we are pulling our hair out. Can anyone help?

I went through some of this growing up -- my sibling and I never saw eye-to-eye. Not sure if it was a sense of competition or just wanting to have the last word all the time, we argued about almost everything. Ultimately, we grew out of it as my older sibling graduated from high school and there seemed to be many other "worldly things" to worry about like what next. When it was my turn to graduate, the first person I turned to was my sister and we continue to be the best of friends even today, sharing every little thing. Our mom says that as long as we were not using abusive words or physically hurting each other, she completely ignored our arguments and rants, letting us handle it. I remember losing privileges though if things got out of hand. Perhaps your kiddos will also "patch up" in time, and perhaps argue less if they found that they were the only players in an argument?

Lol me and my mom were talking about this just the other day. when I was about that age me and my older sister would fight constantly we hated each other. One day a family friend sits us down and tells us that we are all we have and if something ever happened to the other we would regret everything we had fought about and that it would be to late to apologize. Ask someone to talk to them they won't listen to you cause "you don't know anything" don't know if they tell you that but that's what I told my mom. Do they have an authority figure they look up if they do ask that person and I'm sure they will listen. I hope this helps
