In this episode, I am giving you some pointers on how to Combat Sibling Rivalry. You’ll never be able to stop the quarrels and the arguments between the kids – and nor should you. Sibling Rivalry is a natural way for your child to learn what is acceptable behavior (and what’s not) – and how best to connect with people.
Home is a safe environment for your child to learn the unwritten rules of relationships.
My 12 Pointers are :
- Remove Your Own Emotions & Ego – Your feelings don’t come into this!
- No Favourites – This upsets the already fragile balance.
- Be Fair – You don’t have to be equal.
- Avoid Comparisons & Labels – These can have a lasting effect.
- Spot the Triggers – To help diffuse explosive situations before they happen.
- Group Family Fun – Make time to be Together.
- Spend 1-2-1 time with each child – They NEED your attention.
- Observe the Conflict – Pick Your Battles.
- Have a Family Pow-Wow – Where everyone has a voice.
- Manage Expectations – So everyone understands the boundaries.
- Intervene if Necessary – This goes without saying.
- Act as a Team – Be one another’s role models.
