Default Re: siblings arguing

It's hard. I think it may be the hardest part of parenting for me.

One thing I remind myself is that even if I do everything right all the time, they're still going to get into it, from time to time.

And sometimes it helps my older two to be reminded that they exhibited the exact same annoying behavior when they were that age and I NEVER let anyone shame them or use physical measures. They grew out of it and the younger siblings will, too. Time, teaching, and patience and they might as well learn those skills now because they'll interact with annoying adults their whole lives.
