brotherly LOVE??!


I guess I can't relate to what's going on in our house right now(I'm an only child), but listen....
They LOVE to fight!!!! WHY IS THAT??!!!
Its like one gets all excited by taking things away from the other??! Is that not awful???!!!!
Don't get me wrong, there are those sweet times that just MELT MY HEART when they hug, say they love each other, walk holding hands, talk to each other and Justin pretends to understand...its all precious and I'm SO blessed.
HOWEVER, they LOVE to fight...take things away from each other, and I guess this is how its going to be? Don't worry, we discipline but its like I'm realizing that brotherly LOVE comes with brotherly bullying too?! Anybody have some words of wisdom? If ya do, I'm all ears :)

It's normal.. mine do the samething. One minute they are BFF's and the next they are enimies and someone hit somebody. Hi, my name is Mrs. Referee . Ha! ;)

No wisdom - it's the SAME WAY at our house! My boys are 6 and 2, so Gavin, my oldest takes the brunt of little one's bullying. Gavin is so sweet and tender hearted, and Sam is just a little terror - he loves to grab toys right out of Gavin's hands and throw them over the gate down the basement stairs. He also loves to pull his hair, kick him in the shins, and sit on his chest if he is laying on the floor. Now that Sam is getting bigger, we might just let Gavin start defending himself....the problem is that Sam is so completely unempathetic that punishment doesn't phase him, he serves his time and then goes back for more!

Oh sibling love - gotta love it. I don't really have any advice other than when they are old enough try to make them solve their differences. Good luck!!!

My sister and I still have our moments. They will always have theirs. I guess it is part of growing, as much as you would like to see peace all the time. Take it as a good time for a lesson. I hope you are doing great my friend! Have a super day!

No advice, it happens at my house too and it isn't just one of them. Kamden loves to torment too...Keegan says it's just boys...I don't know!

We've got the same thing going on over here except between sisters... but one minute they'll be all lovey-dovey playing nicely and the next minute there is shouting and screeching. Sometimes they can work it out themselves and sometimes they can't... but I'm looking forward to them getting a little older and hopefully some of the "kid" problems will pass!

JDaniel doesn't have a sibling so, he fights with the other only children in his playgroup.

Absolutely normal sibling relationship, it doesn't mean they do not love each other though.

Mine have been fighting so much lately. I have a feeling it's cabin fever, so I can't wait until the weather warms up for good!

I guess that is in my future too. I'll have to be the sharing police!
