How do I cope with my kids fighting 24/7?
Kids fighting can really test your patience at times, so try out these tips and see if they help:
- Establish limits – Rules and boundaries will allow children to understand what is acceptable behaviour. By putting these rules in place, this allows your child to know you are in charge.
- Encouraging conflict resolution – Avoid becoming the referee in your children’s battles, but rather ask the children “how can we fix this problem”?
- Choose the peace path – As busy as parents can get, try not to ignore the fights your children have. Listen to what has happened, but rather than picking a side, suggest a positive outcome that suits the situation and both kids
