    my naphew's almost four and he just charged at me without any warning! that sneaky lil thing! lol

    anyway, play fighting is a fun activity, as long as you remember the fun part of it, i and my naphew learnt new 'fight poses' today Lol, and I've also been asking him to recite the du'as that his baba taught him.. teach your brother short du'as and surahs- mashaAllah kids that age have very sharp memory

    get active with him, chase each other around the house! take him outdoors, make him count something different each time you're both out [number of buses, colored cars, etc], tell him about Allah's creation- the sun, stars, moon, like how they're big, bright and shiny etc...remember brother- don't be afraid of trying out something silly and make sure he enjoys whatever you both choose to do!

    Read to him, go to the playground, play a boardgame, take him out for a treat, play soccer or catch with him, fly kites, go to the childrens museum, go swimming, go to the park and feed the ducks, take him to the zoo, bake cookies together, play marbles, play mother may i, redlight greenlight, etc, go to the toystore....................

    Whats with the childish replies on here? Just keep him away from the brainwashing TV and take him out to the park, Play football, cricket etc.

    try to keep his mind off wanting to watch TV.
    Keep him busy doing what kids do.
    then he may get bored of the T.V and not be so attached.

    He's only four! Give him some time, he's still learning and exploring basic skills.

    Some of the 'advice' on here is pretty irresponsible and really not funny.

    Ibrahim12, some other great advice on here, I'm sure you know which posts those are.

    Okay maybe 4 years is too young to kick the crap out of him. But trust me, as someone who's had 3 younger brothers, sooner or later you'll have to show em' whose boss. They do your head in the little critters.

    Kids love cooking....make cupcakes...and decorate them together...make pizza and let him choose the toppings

    Make a 'tent' (2 chairs...big clothe..and heavy thongs e.g. books to hold it all in place) and just play in the tent...tell stories etc etc

    Read to him....draw....

    PIf you have a garden play outside....get some bubbles and make him pop them....play football/cricket or whatever

    Remember as his older brother he looks up to you....and he probably wants to do.whatever you do and will be happy just to spend time with you
    Yep. This is very good. We did (do) all this stuff.

    I've had three 4 year olds and I'll have another in about 6 months. Teach him to ride a bike. Stabilisers first, of course. The weather's great where I am (England), so now's the time to teach him. Swimming's been mentioned. That's not just fun but is also a necessary life skill. If you throw yourself into these activities now, he'll love you forever.
    I played fighting games with all of mine, and still do. They know the difference between playing and deliberate hurting. My first two were always interested in playing 'Army'. It's a good way to teach them about being honourable. 'Good' soldiers don't kill P.O.W's. etc.They're naturally inquisitive, so they ask about what they see on TV, in the papers and what they hear being discussed. There's no hiding the war from them. Unfortunately.
