    Default what arguments drive you mad?

    I have 2 sisters I look after age 5 & 7. They come 4 days a week and in the holidays they have been driving me mad with their arguments which usually start with "she's not letting me have ideas!!!" I have lost count of the number of times I've said "you can have as many ideas as you like but your sister doesn't have to do what you say!" Back to school later this week - thank goodness!! So - what arguments drive you mad??

    I've got a LO at the moment who is one of my daughters school friends, got her two days a week, but they are constantly arguing over everything.

    I want the pink cup, no I want the pink cup
    I'm elsa, no I'm elsa
    Toys on the shelf no one is playin with until one decides they want to play they both do

    I swear they could argue the colour of grass!

    I've started banning them from playing with each other when they constantly argue. Ban them for 10mins and that tends to help a lil bit.
