Reunited

Any suggestions on how to make the initial joy of a brotherly reunion at the end of the day extend beyond five minutes?

They are always so happy to see one another and until sibling rivalry rears its ugly head.   Then, both are ordered to separate rooms and their rage-filled cries of brotherly injustices fill the air.

I guess the line between love and hate is very thin.
