Is it normal for my little brothers to attempt to kill each other?

My two little brothers, aged 7 and 9, fight every day and attempt to kill each other, and beat each other up until they're tired. It's really really weird for me, because the older one is very intelligent and usually quite mature, so much that people think he's at least 12. But he's always the one who initiates the fight and he's the one who attempts to kill my little brother.

Is It Normal?

  • Uh no them trying to kill each other is not normal. Them fighting might be, but if they're actually trying to kill each other, that does not sound normal.

  • How normal or weird this is depends heavily on how seriously you mean it. I feel like you don't mean they would pull the trigger on the other if they could.

    • the older one will sometimes scream about killing the younger one, and has threatened him with knives before too, and also use the staffs and blunt martial arts knives we have to attack the younger one. they're both very compulsive, as the rest of the family is, so whether they'd actually kill each other depends on the circumstance. long term, they don't hate each other.

  • Boys got a lot of anger and energy. Fighting to them is natural. Get them into some sports or something physical to get that energy out.

  • Maybe you should look into getting them both into MMA or Boxing. Some people are just born tough guys like that. If you taught them to fight they may be fearless and dangerous in the ring. Brothers that grow up fighting are always the toughest because they get to spar eachother daily.

    • they both do kung fu and kickboxing. the younger one is a reckless fighter and also constantly beats up other children at school, and the older one is a strategic fighter.

  • If they actually attempt to kill each other you need to do something like keep them away from each other, maybe call for help. You never know if they actually could manage it or at least seriously injure each other. I don't think you will manage to keep eye on them all the time even though you should try when they are together

  • You better enroll yourself in martial arts classes right now. When your brothers are 14 and 12, they will attempt to kill you. Walls will get kicked out; your house will be in shambles.
