Some days it seems like children can think of nothing better to do than fight. One wonders if they lie awake at night dreaming of the perfect zinger to lob at their sibling to get the fight started. Many are the parents who have despaired over their seeming inability to do anything to stop the fighting. Timeouts haven’t worked, spanking has proved fruitless, blowing their top and screaming at their children has only built resentment between children and parents, threats have made parents feel a greater sense of powerlessness as their children have called their bluff, and ignoring it is driving parents insane. Is there any advice that actually works?
