Parenting Tips

Sibling Rivalry

Sibling squabbles are almost a right of passage of childhood. The next time your children are fighting over a toy, a game, or a food, pause before getting angry. Then, calmly take away the prized item and positively tell the children that they can have it back once they have solved their differences. Seeing the children look at each other - trying to decide if they should actually figure it out together or if they should just part their ways and go do something else - is actually rewarding as a parent. Your children may even surprise you by deciding among themselves to share or take turns!
