It's very important to teach children manners so that they don't end up always fighting. Be strict with them and use soft punishments if they don't listen to you. Like ban them from watching tv or playing on the phone or going out to play for that day. By doing this they will realise that they need to behave appropriately with their sibling and if not they will not get to do their favourite activities. Training the children is very important from the right age, if not done properly, children can end up doing many things that they are not supposed to do. You should be aware of the friends they are with as they will be spending most of their time outside if not at home. As a parent it's your responsibility to be aware of what your children are doing everyday so that you can stop them or guide them when needed.

Be very friendly with your children. You try to encourage them to be obedient by rewarding them small small things like giving them chocolate or a gift if they listen what you ask them to do. Don't scold or punish them because they are too small to understand. And many children will become stubborn if you punish them. Instead of that you sit with them make them understand and try to reinforce them with different things. Now coming to you, dont be stressed its very natural to be naughty for your children at this point of time. You should be strong enough to handle them. Don't worry they won't be hurting one another intensely.. Just see that you care both of them equally.. Don't try to differentiate them. Then this will lead to much more problems among them.. If you have any more queries then please come to us.. our team is here to help you always..

Parenting is a rather complex exercise that most of us struggle with. This is especially because we may not have learnt enough about the dynamics that may exist between the parents themselves and how that is understood by the children, then there is the dynamics between the parents and the children as well as the dynamics between the children themselves. There is also need to have a structure that the children understand so that they don't get anxious and bored, which often leads to them misbehaving, arguing and or fighting. A systemic model may help you understand these better. There are books on the subject as well as those that highlight child development and expected behaviours. If you continue to struggle, seek out help of a family or systemic therapist. Good luck!
