Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My 2.5 yr old fights with her 1.5yr old sister all the time. Sometimes its just over a toy or a sippy cup but then other times its bad. My 2.5yr old has kicked her sister in the face, pushed her into walls and so and so forth. Now my hubby thinks its normal for sibilings but It worries me. Is my hubby right?!

I think sibling rivalry is normal, but going that far is a little to much so ask your doctor about things like that they will tell you if you should start diciplining more or if they need a therapist.

I have an almost 3 year old daughter and a 15 month old son. There are times when they get rough with each other. I know a certain amount of fighting is normal but I do my best to keep it under control. Any time I hear them yelling or fighting (usually about a toy) I tell them to share. Whoever was trying to steal the toy usually just gives it back and finds something else. When things get physical (it's usually my daughter picking on her brother) I separate them immediately, comfort my son if he's crying and explain to my daughter why hitting/kicking/etc. isn't nice. Usually she gets more upset than my son and gives herself a time out.So...You're both right. Your husband is right that it's normal, but you're right to be concerned. Try to teach them to work things out themselves, to be nice, to share, etc. and explain why physical violence isn't acceptable. Do whatever works with your daughter whether it's just explaining why it's wrong, giving time outs, taking away toys, etc.

Colon cleansing which is also called colonic irrigation is one way of cleaning the colon detox or the large gut which is an immensely important organ of the gastrointestinal system. The organ plays an natural part by storing the partly digested waste till it is going to be eliminated from the self.

Just a littleime. Update. My daughter who was 2.5 then is now almost 5yrs old. She was diagnosised with Bi-Polar last month and is seeing a therapist. They do not want to medicate her yet. They wanna wait until she is in school so they can see just how bad it is or if it gets better. He actions got worse over time. She tried to kill her sister 2x. But she has not done that now in over a year thankfully. She has actually cut herself to get what she wants and well the therapist is trying to figure out why she decided to do that and well a 4 year old isnt the easiest to talk to when it comes to feelings lol. But she has her good days and her bad days. They also feel that her epilepsy might be playing in as a factor as well. All I know is that we are in for a battle throughout the coming years and well I am ready to take it just 1 day at a time! Thanks for all of your help guys :)
