I think i'd go all "Parent trap" on them, and force them to do everysinglething together for a few days. I'd give them tedious jobs that need to be done together, i'd make them sit at their own table for meals, etc. I probably wouldn't let up until I saw some teamwork.
Yup. Mine are much younger than yours but also close, 15 months apart, and they duke it out. I think it's important for them to be able to work things out in their own way amongst themselves, and they can't do that if I'm interfering every arguement.
My H dislikes it, but frankly he's an only child and doesn't get the bonding that comes with the bantering and mock-fights.
