As a mother of four I was really enjoying the joys and pleasure of it all until hell broke loose! When the middle one turned 4 and a half then I become pretty much a full time referee. She is five now and the other sister is almost 9 years. They disagree, fight and are so verbal with each other. O.M.G sometimes it's bad that I need to separate them. Time out, taking away toys and privilege/s works for a short time. With my eldest I didn't experience it as there was a big age gap of 11 years and she didn't have to do this as she could reason. If you have more than one child, how are you dealing with it? What has worked and hasn't? They like to put each other in trouble and have both become good at it. We have good days and some where they constantly report each other and continuous arguing. On days when the weather isn't great and can't play out much then towards the end of the day when they are tired, it's worse................. I ask them to hug and remind them that they actually love each other by saying it to each other. I love you my dear Sister, they laugh and become friends for however long before I have to become a referee again.. Oh my dear Mum I love you for putting up with all this, I think of that a lot as my Mum put up with me and my Sister a lot. It's not as bad as it sounds but when am called on the pitch am thinking O.M.G that was a very short break 😔🙋
