The relationship between twins is a special topic. They always have a lot of intimacy and at the same time a lot of rivalry.
After a year, there is often jealousy between the twins, when every child requires greater attention from the parents. This is a natural stage, which is easier if mom and dad manage to pay equal attention to both children.
Fighting between brothers and sisters is a direct result of rivalry and an almost inevitable part of their interaction. But for twins, it is also a way of separation, separation, a way of saying “I am different, I am stronger”.
Son and daughter are now only learning to express their feelings, including aggression. It’s still not easy to do this for each other.
In this sense, you are right: it is important to learn to distinguish between those situations in which the brother and sister can figure out for themselves, and those that require your direct intervention. Children are still very small, and at this age you need your presence to stop the direct aggression, for example, of a boy aimed at a sister or any other child.
What can you do? Stand up between the kids, divide them, firmly and calmly tell your son that you can’t beat your sister, but he can beat a pillow or a large stuffed toy, briefly spread children into different rooms.
It is important for kids to learn that feeling displeasure or anger is normal, however, expressing your negative emotions is necessary so as not to cause harm to yourself or others. After that, switch their attention to other activities, offer a light snack or lay a rest. Try to analyze when a fight usually arises.
Often the cause of such behavior at a young age is fatigue, hunger, irritation or fatigue from each other.
