1, 2, 3 magic; and learn each boy's love language and help them express themselves to each other with those things in mind.
A child's behavior often is an expression of issues the parent has and expresses in some way the child can perceive, often intuitively or subconciously. Awareness of the family dynamic as a whole can be very important.

also I find conflict represents competition. I have had excellent success focusing in children on getting them organic Vitamin/mineral supplementation with Alpha Sun from Simplexity Health and also Hemp Seeds in for theire high Omega 3, 6, 9 content. when these nutrients are replete in their bodies competition is reduced and cooperation comes forth.

Parenting is one of the toughest jobs out there! from my perspective being firm, and setting boundaries of acceptable behavior is of paramount importance.
Now the difficult part is to enforce the consequence when the boundary is breached; which can be anything from a "time-out" (usually 1 minute/year of age) to restricting a privilege or activity. Remember to tell the child they are loved.
