I have 2 boys 4 and 5 who fight constantly fight each other. I have asked them time and time again to stop. I told them if they didn't stop that I would start putting their toys in the bin. Which I did and now have had a blazing argument with my husband about it. All I wanted is that my boys learn to listen and do as they have been asked or lose something they want. I don't believe in not sticking with what I have said.

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and frustrating situation. Have you tried simply explaining to them why it's important for them to listen to you in a way that they can easily understand? Or perhaps you could try different kinds of discipline like reward charts or time outs that may not be as controversial and that way you won't have to go back on your word. Sticking to what you say and consistency is important in a child's development, so I understand where you're coming from. You may find it helpful to read our articles on challenging behaviour.

Hi I understand that children fighting can cause a lot of stress and can put strain on the family. However, I agree with you in the way that children need clear boundaries on what they can and cannot and the consequences around that.
