Why do kids fight
I see many posts about kids fighting and often wonder why no one ever asks how it all got started. There is a general assumption that it's just normal behavior!
IMO and experience, it is not NORMAL...IT WAS OUR PARENT'S FAULT!
My brother & I were systematically taught and trained to be bad to each other and allowed be bad to our little sister by our PARENTS.
Our home was troubled, unhappy, FRIGHTENING and a perfect breeding ground for troubled kids like us. Our parents and parenting was the entire reason for our so-called normal sibling rivalries. Parents have the DUTY to teach, train and model good, loving, respectful behavior and attitudes in their own home and ours FAILED miserably to do their DUTY so we ended up fighting a lot while assuming it was all the other kid's fault.
IT WAS OUR PARENT'S FAULT!
