"They fight over whose turn it is with the iPad, who has more time with the iPad

"They fight over whose turn it is with the iPad, who has more time with the iPad and who is better at whatever game they are currently playing on the iPad. They fight over who got the bigger piece of cake, more frosting, the better plate. They call each other names and dole out insults like 'You’re a butt' and 'No, YOU’RE a butt.' Sometimes the fighting makes me want to scream or cry, or both. I wonder what I’m doing wrong as a parent? I lament the fact that two of the people I love the most, don’t seem to like each other at times. There are days when it seems like the vast majority of their interactions are hostile (and exasperating). But, every afternoon at 4:04 pm when my son gets off the school bus from kindergarten, this happens. They greet each other with hugs, kisses, and walk home arm-in-arm, saying things like: 'You're my favorite person.' 'Thanks, you're my favorite person, too.' As a parent, that's the best I can hope for; that my babies will fight and forgive... That they will practice what it means to be a human with each other; that they will learn when to stand their ground and when to let something go; that they will learn to be siblings—maybe even favorites!" ❤️
