My two boys are 20 months old, and 4 years old. They fight over everything. EVERYTHING! I cant take it anymore. The fighting and screaming. I tried taking toys that they fight over away for a few days, but i would end up having every toy from their room in my closet. Lol Alot of it is Little Brothers temper lately, he's going through a horrible "MINE" stage. I dont remember Big Brother ever going through such a cranky stage. But i know its not just that, they fight over everything, not just toys, drinks, cups, places to sit, threir beds, space in the bath tub. Its getting ridiculous. I really cant mentally take it much more. When they arent fighting over something, they are like best friends. I dont get it... HOW CAN I MAKE THEM SHARE??

My kids fight all the time too. What you need to do if you can is buy 2. If you are getting new cups buy 2 just alike. If you are getting new toy cars buy 2 just alike. If you can't buy 2, just be strict, talk firmly and let them know "It is brothers turn right now, you can play with it later." That is how I deal with my kids. You can't make them be best friends right now, maybe in the future they will be friends, you just have to deal with it 1 day at a time.
