It’s absolutely possible that they feel more safe and comfortable to be who they really are with you, even if that includes sibling fighting. Knowing it’s because they’re more comfortable to be themselves with you doesn’t make the fighting any easier to tolerate, though. I’d try sitting them down and asking why they fight so much and what ideas they have to make it better.
