Mine are 4.6 and 2.8

Between 3 and 10 depending on how tired they are. DS is getting pretty good at storming off to his room and shutting the door to be alone rather than taking it out on his little sis.

On work days, usually at least once in the morning before we leave for work/childcare and once in the evening.

Mine are 3.3 and 1. More than 10... But DS2 is just crawling and into ruining DS1's play... If I have a morning when DS1 hasn't been pushed over/bashed about, and DS2 hasn't sat on the naughty step, then it's a FANTASTIC day!

LOL Kerrymumbledore
HHippo, it was worse when they were younger. Couldn't even take 10 minutes to wash up unless DD of them was napping.

my ds is 6 and dd is almsot 3. They have always been great util this summer holiday and they are at each other almost constantly at the minute. DD is irrational and hysterical and screams at the slightest thing and well ds just loves the sport !!!! hoping it is just because they have been together so much over the last few weeks!

Kerry - I agree!
mine are 4.8(dd) and 2.10(ds1) and it's ALL day!
They constantly argue, steal each others toys, climb all over each other, dd will agrevate ds, he gets cross hits/bites her -both end up in tears.
We regularly have days where one or the other of them is sat on the naughty step 4-8 times! - or more!

good so glad you all are the same as me.

All day long or so it seems. They are 6, 4 and 18 months, although it's only just beginning with the little one. The older 2 are into verbal insults at the moment. The worst one ds (4) can think of is "I'm going to wee on your head!"

I think it has got a bit better as regards not having to intervene all the time. 90% of the time now I hear the volume go up and then it goes down again without my having to do anything.

Sorry to hijack, but what does everyone do about constant tale-telling after small fights?

mine are 4 & nearly 8, and the answer is constantly!
