I know it’s normal… but how normal is it?
My brother is 11 years younger than me so we were always very civilized. In contrast, I have my children very close in age and I’m terrified at the level of violence involved in sibling fighting. The back seat of the car seems to be the preferred arena right now… it usually starts with Oldest Daughter pinching Middle Daughter and it all ends in punching, kicking, scratching, biting and yes...sometimes… spitting!.
I’m certainly happy with my girls being wild, muddy and crazy…I never wanted Downton Abbey ladies… but when they’re in this state I’m concerned I’m raising two cavewomen …
How much of this is ordinary between siblings?
