I am at my wits end and I hope that someone out there has some advice. My 2 daughters, 10 & 12 are driving me crazy. They lost their father 4 weeks ago and now they are fighting over everything. My 12 yr old won't do anything the same as the 10 yr old. I guess she is trying to claim her independence. But, the 12 yr old won't play or do anything with the 10 yr old and on the rare occassion that they do something together, it always ends in an argument. They did start this before their father passed away, but it is getting worse now that he isn't here. Example: Today I took them bowling. Things were fine for about 2 frames and then it started. Arguing about what chair to sit in, what ball to use, don't use my ball. It completely ruined my day for me trying to take them somewhere to have some fun for a while. I am seriously considering therapy for all 3 of us, but really don't want to go that route unless we absolutely have to.
