Hi. My eldest girl is almost 10 and a half. She's always been hot tempered and emotional. I tend to be a bit the same (except for the emotional part). Recently it's getting worse and her almost 7 year old sister is copping the brunt of it. DD2 does get up in her face and drive her insane but it feels like her reactions are over the top.
I'm not sure whether it's just the school holidays or hormones or what. But it's driving DH and me crazy. We're taking the kids away for a few days at the end of the week and TBH I'm beginning to think it's a mistake all I'll be doing is breaking up fights. We have 2 other younger children and they don't seem to cause any fights. Just the oldest 2.
Can anyone with older kids help me with some strategies to manage anger in kids particularly sibling fighting?
