Do your children fight all the time?

My three children are pretty good mates if anyone else wants to pick on them, but they constantly bicker and try to cheat each other out of toys or sweets at home. I think this is normal. What do you think?

Yes, it is normal. Seems that most siblings do that.

They don't fight all the time but they definately have their moments.

I also think it is normal. I only had one child but I have taken care of many other children. I took care of two sisters who were very protective of each other but fought with each other like crazy. One of their favorite things to do was mock each other. One would say something and the other would say the same thing. But if anyone picked on the other one, the other sister would be right there ready to defend her.

My kids fight like cats & dogs among themselves but if anyone else tries to hurt them - they had better watch out.

Absolutely normal. Its what siblings do. I dont really know why they do it, I'm not a behavioural annalist. You have given me something to mull over now, thanks.
