Re: WHAT DO I DO!? so frustrating!

my first thought was the "we will get along" shirt, the XXXL shirt that they have to wear together like a two-headed monster until they could be nice to each other. Or make them sit holding hands until they could say something nice about each other.

DH had a talk with our kids last week about control, and how when you get all upset about something, you are giving the other person control over how you feel. They are choosing to bother the other person, and choosing to let the other person bother them. Now we remind our kids "who's in control?" and "what are you choosing?" and it works pretty well, because they don't want to admit that their brother is being their boss
