Default Siblings!!!!

I am at my wits end. Only set of siblings I've ever had. Old enough to know better but still choose to fight, argue, hit, annoy, tease, and everything else to one another while they are at my house. I usually have to end up stepping up my voice and getting really serious before they still take me seriously, and ends up in them upset as well. It's crazy, I would never accept my kids acting like this at someone else's home.

How old?

I'd get my chore list or bored jar out when they act like that.

I would also do everything in my power to keep them separated. Assign them other playmates, anyone they don't hit, annoy or fight with.

I would also be SUPER strict and FIRM about the physical stuff....if they hit, they sit. No matter what age, there is no excuse for hitting.

I have a couple sibling sets too and they are definitely unique in the issues they seem to have with each other.

Except for 1 child, I have all siblings. And yes, it's a whole different ballgame. I have 'just turning' 3 yo twins and yesterday when dcm came to pick up, they started hitting, pushing and pulling each other's hair, right out of the blue. All within a minute and a half one of them was crying.
I also have SA kids coming back. They can get pretty nasty to each other. The worst is a 6 yo dcg and her 9 yo brother. Wow.

The sets of sibs I have are definitively the worst about keeping their hands off of each other!I have a total hands to yourself rule to avoid issues and every set of sibs is the worst at obeying it with each other! UGH!

Same!

I have mostly part timers so TWO of my THREE sibling sets come on alternating days! It is so much better. The third that attends the same day has the older sibling exiting in a month to relax before starting Kindergarten. Having siblings is HARD.
