Okay here I am, another day has passed. I wish I could say there weren't any...He looked at me MOM. Mom tell her to stop. He is teasing me. Or that my little errand to the store was picture perfect with my two children by my side acting like I raised them with some sense. Instead of them chasing each other out the door. Who bopped who over the head? And ultimately one ends up in tears! Oh mind you they are not that young,14 and 11 years old. I remember fighting with my brother, but not like this.

Darlin I am a mom of 4 and I know where you are comingfrom 100%. I look forward to my kids going to school everymorning to have a few hours of silence before the tornado comes through after school. Like you I love and adore my kids when they are behaving like normal humans, but they start acting like animals there are times I wish I could send them to zoo.

I hear you on the tornado coming through. I cringe when they are in the same room at times. Oh they love each other immensely but.... I will tell you what worked for awhile. I threatened to handcuff them together..so basically it would be a sink or swim situation. You had to see their blessed faces, they knew I was serious. Both gave me a kiss and took off real fast...In opposite directions. Who knows one day those handcuffs might actually come in handy! LOL

Lets admit it! as kids we are all guilty of teasing our brothers/sisters and now that I have kids, sometimes my ears bleeds hearing them say 'mama, look what my sis did'..well all i can say is its a phase all kids go through.

Sounds like a case of boredom. Either give them a time out or make them clean the house. If that doesnt work go to your room. When your at the store and they act up. Embarrass the heck out of them. There are several things you can do. My favorite is farting-LOL Make em sit in the car. My kids are the same way. Somedays better than others. Good luck to you and welcome to myLot.

I know how you feel i have five children and my 11 year old daugther and 15 year old son are always arguing. Its constantly "Mum he done this."Mum she done that". But if anyone outside our family trys to hurt them they always stick up for each other. And they do have times when they get on well. They are always there for each other. I always use to fight with my brother and sister as kids but now we are grown up we all get on fine.

Good Luck. the only way i get away from the bickering is to go to my bedroom and close the door and threaten bodily injury if they come near it!

My oldest Brother and I are like this. I don't know how my Mom deals with us. I don't know why we do it...I'm soon-to-be 40 and he's pushing 44 and we still irritate each other. We occasionally have a good day where we tend to get along but they are few and far between. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
