My daughter & her cousin(who are both 4) can't get along. They are in the same playschool class & dance class and they constantly fight over everything. At dance it is over the square they stand on who gets to be by the teacher etc. and at playschool it is over the spot to sit on on the mat, to certain colored toys etc. And even worse now they have started to tease one another when they get something the other one has. This is a distraction for other children in the class and especially in dance it takes away from the teacher instructing. I have tried simply removing my daughter from dance when she is disturbing the class and it worked for a few weeks but now we are back to square one again. As for play school the teacher has removed items that really cause a problem but they still find something else to fight over. I know that they are 4 and this is a phase they will probably grow out of but am wondering if anyone has any advice for me as a parent how I can get my daughter to develop a better relationship with her cousin. Seperating them this year is not an option!
