My kids are l0 years apart, but that doesn't stop them from fighting with ecah other. I usually step in if it gets out of hand, but that doesn't happen often. Usually they work it out themslves. This year has been especially hard for us all, and it has brought them closer together.

With 5 kids you teach them by letting them work it out, unless it gets physical or tears become an issue then I intervine and if need be punishments are dooled out.

Default remembering...

i hurry up and remind them, that God placed them both on earth to love each other and they are all they have. It shuts them up almost every time.

my children are 8, 9, and 11 (2 boys and 1 girl). I usually let them battle the problem out and I just listen in. If it starts to get to bad then I step in and help them resolve the problem.

My children are 7 and 3 and I have to step in. Otherwise they will get worse and worse, louder and louder!
I usually find something for both of them to do away from each other for awhile and then have them come together to do a puzzle or something. They usually forget what was going on by the time they get together again.
It's seemed to work so far. Although the hardest part is tearing them up.

Smile Step In

I have 5 children, they are 15, 14, 11, 9, and 5. I have to step in because sometimes its 3 on 1 or 4 on 1. It can start out as arguing over who sits in the front when we go out or just who sits next to who on the couch. Then it escalates to pushing, hiting, screaming or shouting. But now that my two older girls are starting to help me with the younger siblings its a more controlable situation (sometimes). Oh did i mention i have 4 girls and 1 boy, yea hes stuck with nothing but women.

I would first let them try to handle things . If not I would go in. My girls are almost 15 and almost 9.

Wink Quarrel Query

I am a mother of two very "opinionated" little darlings. My daughter is 11 and my son is 8. Now, only recently have these two started bickering and arguing almost on a daily basis and to be honest I sometimes can sympathize with one or the other because like myself and my younger brother growing up, my children are unfortunately stuck living in an apartment and sharing the same bedroom to boot. So after many trying situations I finally decided that the only way to get them to appreciate one another again would be to everytime an arguement breaks out, I call them into livingroom and I make them sit down and write in their own journals I got for them and first explain what it was exactly that started the arguement. Then I make them continue on a seperate page to write out a time when the other one made them feel good or happy, a time they had together that made them laugh. After I finish reading these little special memories back to one another, they more so than not forget about their differences and start reminiscing more about those moments. They even go as far to pull out the photo albums and start looking at the pictures of other memorable moments they enjoyed growing up. That's when I once again, reach for the camera.

Default Sibling Rivalry

I have 3 children... An 11 yr old daughter, a 10 yr old son, and a 2 1/2 yr old daughter. They are constantly fighting, especially my 10 and 11 year olds. Letting them sort it out just doesn't work for my kids. I have to separate them. Time outs don't work for them either. It is kind of a reward. I take things away that they hold dear. They have to earn them back. I have also found that extra chores tend to keep them in line most of the time. They don't want to get along and waste time fighting over nothing, I waste their time cleaning. I have also found out, that since they are a boy and a girl, me saying that they bicker and argue like a married couple usually shuts them up pretty quick as well.
