I have two daughters aged 12 and 14, and they will not stop wrestling and tussling with each other. I am divorced and am remarried, and my husband does not feel comfortable physically separating them. They don't really hurt each other much, and they wrestle mostly out of fun, but we don't like it anyway. They tend to do it more when they are alone at home with my husband, as they can get away with more stuff with him.
It usually involves the older girl sitting on the younger girl's stomach with her knees on her shoulders laughing at how red her face is, but usually degrades to pulling each ohter's hair. Just the other day, we came home to find the one girl had the other in a tight scissor hold with her legs around the other girls neck facing each other, and her face was so red I thought it was going to explode. The thing is that as I said they don't fight seriously, and seem to actually have fun doing it.
Any ideas on what my husband and I should do/ not do?
