between 10 yr old ds1 and 20m old ds2. ds1 seems to think he can boss ds2 around and give him a dig when he doesn't do what ds1 orders him to.

I'm afraid with that much of an age gap, I'd be having a serious chat with the 10yr old about bullying! He is old enough to take into account that he is dealing with someone who is not yet even 2 years old and to be more caring!

what do you mean for 'give him a dig'? if you mean physically I'd be reading the riot atc at a 10 year old, taking away computer etc privileges , that kind of thing

Have done that!!!

read riot act, withdrawn priviledges etc.

yes i mean physically. everytime ds2 follows ds1 into the hall/his bedroom ds2 ends up crying with ds1 suddenly proclaiming rather too loudly "Oh dear you have fallen/ banged your head/hur your toe" etc.

Hecates, I said it before I am sending ds1 to you for a week lol.

Send him! [evil] grin He'd be begging you to come and pick him up within 24 hours. although he'd probably require years of therapy to forget me. wink
