Sibling rivalry: when do you step in?

Sibling rivalry can be a pretty big issue if you have kids that just don't get along. A little bit is normal and expected. My kids don't really fight, probably due to age. But sometimes they do annoy each other.

When, as a parent, do you think is the time to step in? Did you have issues of sibling rivalry with your own siblings? Could your parents have done anything about it?

      We step in before it escalates out of hand. We didn't really have any sibling rivalry growing up, my second youngest sister had issues at 10 when our youngest sister was born...and they still do have some issues because of that, I think, but not sure since I am not there.
        My kids are 19mnths and 3yrs and they have been fighting a lot the last few days. I just can't take much more of it. I am going out of my mind!
