I'm fed up with Joshua. I just don't know what to do with him. He CONSTANTLY antagonizes his sister. He can get up from time out or a spanking and immediately go right back to it. I'm just fed up to here and I can't take any more. Today my strategy is that he has no freedoms, none. He stays by my side and sits on the floor next to me no matter where I am. Any ideas out there??

Sometimes when the girls are driving each other nuts, I simply have to separate them. They each have to play in their own rooms or just be apart. I find that absence, for them, tends to make their hearts grow fonder.

And, I have had to realize that sometimes I just have to let them work through their tiffs on their own. Don't get me wrong, I don't let them scrap like cats and dogs, but I do encourage them to work it out together. Sometimes I actually hear them talking about things like sharing, etc. so that's pretty cool. Even when they aren't constantly applying sisterly kindness, at least they are learning to handle various situations.
