seems lately my kids fight over EVERYTHING and its driving me nuts. i try talking to them, taking things away, time outs. tristan is to little to understand but dd should be more then old enough to understand. they are constantly fighting over toys, snatching them from each other, bickering over who gets what sippy cup. there is never a quiet minute in our home and its about to get more intense when number three is born!

That is very much the norm here too. Mine will even fight in the car over who is saying what. "I don't want her to say that" "It's my turn to talk" OMG!!!! Then there is the crying. There is so much crying I don't know if it is them just being upset or if they are really hurt.
My kids have actually picked up on it because i am always saying you guys are driving me bananas so they use that saying now LOL!
Honestly the only thing that seems to work is ignoring it. If I intervene I just have to keep going back and settling another argument 2 mins later. If I let them be to work it out, there is about 20 mins of craziness and crying but then they all seem to find their role in the group and they get along.
i am fed up with telling them all the time, i usually just let them "sort" it out themselves before i run in and tell them off. Lacey is terrible, she is constantly whining over something! she always wants what Rhianna has.. and rhianna likes to tease lacey with "i got his lacey.." grrrrrr lol
I say the word "share" at least 100x a day, and I remind them that if they fight over a toy I put it up on the washing machine. I confiscate alot of toys, but once they come down two days later, the kids do remember and take turns for awhile. The more I intervene in the day to day fights, the worse they seem to get. Its a work in progress
Glad I'm not alone... Sometimes I feel like I am... I try to get them to share and take turns but if that doesn't work I take the toy away. I don't let him fight over it because then the younger one starts pull hair, biting, and pushing, hitting his older brother. Aiden doesn't defend himself very well
