    How do you handle two siblings that argue all of the time and at times they get into physical fights

    I hear you!!!  My two daughters did nothing but fight.  I was convinced they hated each other.  If they weren't screaming at each other, they were physically beating each other.  It was horrible!!

    I resorted to sending them to their rooms (hooray for separate rooms) for one hour when they fought at home.  When they fought in a store or somewhere public, they were sent to their room for the night when we got home no matter what time of the day it was.  If they fought in a restaurant, we left whether our food had been delivered or not.  Any other place, we would go outside to have a "discussion", then we went back in and tried it again.

    Eventually, it became almost bearable and today they are close friends.

    I am 18 years old with one brother.  From solely my experience, as the years went by, we slowly bonded more and more.  We use to fight a lot more but now the fights are rather insignificant and we understand each other more.  In the time being, I do not have much advice for you, but know that it will get better as the siblings mature and realize how they will always be there for each other.

    Me and my sis were always fighting, verbally and phisically but I think in the end it made us closer. Our mum had such trouble trying to stop us and regardless of what our mum did we would always argue again but now we will sometimes laugh about the things that we used to fight over. I think fighting between siblings is just a normal part of growing up and maybe you shouldn't try to stop it so much but just act as the ref in case it gets too rough smile

    If they are still young maybe this will work....I will think of something they enjoy maybe food, toys etc, I will make a deal, if they don't fight I will give them a prize. If they behave I'm in trouble lol! But I must really give their prize I promised.

    But if they are grown up patiently talking to them everyday may help. Because kids needs repetition.
