I have an idea why dont u check it with this. please do convey both of them if they are going to be the same they will have to face the consequences (they will get seperated). Talk to them about the advantages of being together. talk to them about your early days where u had friends and how u spent time with them which nowadays these children lack. Ask them not to speak for the whole day with each other so that they will understand the happiness of togetherness. mekala.B

This is a tuff age for any kid my daughter is 2 and my son is 8mos. She is very loving to him however she does not like to share and picks fights with him often. I think that it is the age and the fact they cannot communicate well. I am sure your son feels as the other boy is moving in and just does not like it. I would make sure you spend enough time with both boys but make sure you give your own son some special attention I am sure it will go a long way. My Income For Life
