I am a 32 year old woman with two children. One is 8years old (a girl) and the other one is 2years old (a boy). I noticed that they could not be put together in the same room.3 minutes would be way too long for them to get along. They always fight on anything. Sometimes I find it a bit cute but sometimes really so troublesome. Is it really like that? That us why we really opted to choose different gender for every pregnancy for we thought that having different ones would create harmony for both. That the girl would not be jealous ur the younger brother for they have different choices of many things and vice versa. But still the same thing happened. It doesn't matter whether the toy is for girl or for boy they still fight over it. Sigh... How about some mommies out their? Does your kids also have the same situation? What do you do about it?

My nephews and niece have this kind of problem when they were young. But Im glad for some reason they started to get along much now.

I guess they would maybe when they get older. But as of now I'll just have to care with their quarreling on many things.

I have three girls and a boy. They are spaced fairly evenly - roughly two years between each set, except the last two. All my kids get along and look after each other pretty well. Even when they were little, they got along really well. They bicker occasionally, but they love one another.

Wonderful. How did you get to teach them not to pick on each other? Mine was that the younger one (the boy) is always picking on his big sister and the big sister also cries right away. But I know they live each other for they are thoughtful to each other.

@jndlponti I didn't really have to teach them, though they sometimes needed a wee reminder We practised the family bed when they were little, and we homeschooled for many years. The children spent a lot of time together - close together! Maybe that helped.... Yours are quite far apart. I suspect it will be more of a challenge with them. But once they are grown, they will be closer.

Oh wow I'm older than you. I'm 38 and I have a son. Wish to have another one if God allows it. I think if I'm gonna have another child, he or she will surely get along well with my son.

It seemed that my 2 kids went through phases where they got along wonderfully and phases where I didn't dare to leave them alone together. My advise is to hang in there! It may just be a phase and things will improve.

I certainly hope so. My hopes was that when the younger one gets a bit older he would come to understand things and not to pick on his big sister anymore.

I am one of six kids and we fought all the time.I would think it would have been better if we had our own space..

Like each one would be give each a room? Thats a good idea. I was thinking of separating them later as the other ones grow a bit older.
