Seems like it is soo constant. They fight over toys, they fight over me, they just FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! Did your LOs do this? If they are doing this at 11months what the heck is going to happen at 2? Any suggestions, tips, etc... or words of encouragment? Or should I just chalk this up to my life from here on out? It makes me sad because aren't they supposed to be close? They act like they don't even like each other.

I find its getting better at nearly two, only because I can enforce sharing, and their fights get rough, so neither of them actually wins.
My guys weren't fighters until about 6 months ago

Lucky mother to five!

It does get better, mine actually play together a lot more than they used to.

Mine fight too. If they are fighting over a toy, I take the toy away. If they are fighting over me, I walk away. It's a bit of tough love, but it's really cut back on the amount of that they fight. Before I take things away, I do ask them to share or ask if one of them wants a different toy. Now that they can follow commands, that does work, especially since they know thye'll lose whatever they wanted anyway.

Thank you peimum for my siggie
