If you are a parent to more then one kid, it’s likely that you have experienced some “sibling rivalry”.  You’ve heard arguments between them about some silly things:  “He’s looking at me!” or “She made and ugly face at me!”  And there are likely days that you just want to either (a) curl up in hole somewhere and ignore it all or (b) lay down the law and yell to get everyone else to be quiet.  Am I right?  It’s okay to say “yes”.  

This blog gives some positive ideas for how to help your children get along with one another.  We as parents, we must allow them to work things out on their own rather than diving in to solve the problem.  

From the blog:  “Eventually, they were able to see that each member of the family added to the good of the whole. They both added value in a different way.”

It lists the following five tips and lessons to help:  

  1. We are all on the same team.
  2. Give them each a voice.
  3. Mediate instead of solving the conflict.
  4. Model healthy conflict resolution in your marriage.
  5. Do projects together.
