I hate to say it but corporal punishment also works. My brother and I were always fighting as kids and we were punished for it. We're adults now and much closer than when we were little
they'll learn to work together. look at their activities and see where you can facilitate more team building activities between them than activities where they could compete. I promise, it will get easier. Ask older, wiser mothers what they have done in similar situations.
it's cool. Also, don't force them to work together. They'll see right through it... well possibly not yet. The 4 year old will catch on eventually so you got a couple years before the kid starts catching on. I said facilitate earlier to make sure you don't force them to do so. One more thing, keep being an awesome mom!
True! Punishment is needed to learn
Mine are fourteen and ten and still fight all the time. I'm wiser and more patient, and that helps them move on more quickly. Reading Kevin Lehman's books helped me very much with this and other issues. I love his views.
Well, I've read dozens of books on patenting, and his are my favorites.
Good luck, mothering is the toughest job on the planet!
no. your mistake is having them so far apart.
*******! Who do you think you are to tell a mother when she should have her kids?
