    why not just let them be?? if you like to do it, let them!! If you do not want them to fight how are they going to grow up? there will always be some sort of fight along the roads with who knows who! i believe in letting them be

    My Opinion; Do not try to Stop them,(AND I KNOW NO ONE CAN DO IT) because they have only these five years to do as they like. they feel easy and happy to fight with each others. enjoy enjoy the small small issues by which they are fighting. if you are not agree asked this enjoyment from out door fathers!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have an idea. How about educating children on whats good behaviour and whats bad. That's instead of looking getting a $120 an hour practioner to tell you what to do. There is always going to be a tablet ffor your problem not. Teach them how to handle different situations rather than looking for a medical excuse for it. And before you start I know there are the exceptions.

    Make a deal using Grandma's Rule. When you've done what I;ve asked you to do then you're free to do what you want to do. Encouraging them to follow the rules they've established and learn to care for others by being care for themselves.
