When u have more than 1 child , is it common to have sibling fights n squabbles or even his simple snatching of toys n crying ? It is driving me nuts .. I have a 2 years old n 5 years old
My kids also squabble a lot. But I make them apologize to each other and hug later on. My kids are 1 and 4 years old.
Me too! But it's a stage. It will happen they will squabble and that's okay as long as you correct and teach them. The joy of sibilings.
it is normal, it will not be normal if they dont fight and squabble..dont worry..its the fun of having siblings!
hi we have same kids age as yours + nb. for my 2 kids sometimes makes me so stress. my older one is boy so he really likes to bully his sister. actually its normal for siblings to fight most of the time i scolding them after that im guilty and hug & discipline them.Read more
yes its very normal. Actually they aren't fighting, just squabbling which is very common between siblings. You have to be firm in breaking up their fights and do constant explaining to them. But afterall, you will still see the happier side of them. Taking care of each other.Read more
Well my kids are the exact same ages as yours! It's very common and it's normal. But no, they are NOT driving me nuts. My method is repetitively separate them during a fight. Calm them down, talk to them individually asked what's going on, Then talk senses to them individually. I will then punish both of them but elder one harsher becoz she is the oldest she should guide the younger one along, help me to tc of didi, not getting in a fight with him. Just keep on repeat my way whenever they squabble or fight. Gradually they will remember my words, my teachings and slowly.. rarely fight. Squabble yes. That's very common.Read more
yes its common
we have kids of the exact same age!! It's very very very normal and common. It's part and parcel of having siblings. So don't worry about it! yes it drives me nuts. i ever just sat there and watch them fight. i told them. i shall see who win. mummy is tired from breaking fightsRead more

- Hi, I’m mummy of 3 kids.Elder one is 12 years old, 2nd one is 9 years old and younger one is 5 mths old. I’m fully bf my lo now. After my lo came, my life suddenly changed a lot. I’m felt so stresss to look after my kids, I have to worry my elder n 2nd’s homework, have to do housework, have to cook, have to pump for my lo, have to look after my lo. I felt lost and I don’t have much time to rest. Since delivered, everyday I’m only sleep no more than 5 hours. No Matters how I clean n done the housework, my elder n 2nd one will mess the house and everyday I have to redo n redo. No one is helping me. All I have to do it myself. No matter how I talk to my elder n 2nd one, they just repeat n repeat. I really felt lost. I don’t know how to carry on this kind of lifestyle. :(
i know its not easy....but try making older ones do things as part of a game or story. support of older siblings is very important. once your baby reaches 6 mnths to 1 year....make the older children be engaged with the baby in terms of playing games, learning, and keeping entertained so you can have your time too to breatheAnonymous
- Just a questions poops out . My ex husb n i hv been divorced almost 2 years. He left us n hasnt been coming to see his child almost 3 years plus. The last he seen was when he was 1 years plus. Now my child is 5years old. The only person my child knows is my family, my ex mil n my ex sil. Even my ex fil never bother to see e child. My question is in e event if my ex mil or ex fil no longer around, is it a must to attend funerals? My child doesnt know anything n how will e child gonna react n behave? How is gonna impact on my child? If my ex husb force me that my child to attend? How? I hv sole custody n care n control . Ever since we divorced, not a birthday or seeing the child that matters to him? I need to know so i know watt to do in future. I hoped i can get gd advise from mom n dad outt here. Thank you.
Personally, I would at least give them the last respect. Without them, there wouldn’t be your ex-husband. Without your ex-husband, there wouldn’t be your child. I think, that much of a respect should be given. We must teach our child to be kind, sympathetic and respect others, not just elders, no matter how they are related to them.Anonymous
