Sibling Rivalry: 4 Tips To Help Your Kids Get Along by ValourDigest(m): 10:41am On Sep 26, 2020
Considering the traditions that governed marriage and childbearing in our parents' days, it is not very likely that you grew up without siblings. In that case, think back to your childhood days. Try to remember how you related with your siblings and how you would often get into minor scuffles with them. That was sibling rivalry, and, in retrospect, it feels pretty normal. After all, everyone quarrels sometimes.

However, that rivalry could've become something much worse if your parents did not manage it efficiently at the time. So, in a manner of speaking, you owe your parents some gratitude for efficiently taking care of the situation. However, that is not the only debt you have to pay. You also owe a duty to your children to help them manage sibling rivalry and get along properly. That is why we'll be sharing five useful tips to help your kids get along in this article. Without further ado, let's dive right in:

1. Teach your children conflict resolution skills

Considering that these little bundles of joy you have aren't adults yet, you cannot automatically assume that they know how to resolve conflicts. If you don't teach them, you should know that they won't learn it from anywhere else because elementary education doesn't offer this knowledge either.

As such, you must drill proper conflict resolution skills into your children. Teach them to listen when the other person is talking. In the same vein, tell them which language is appropriate to use and which ones they should avoid even when provoked. By doing so, you'll be laying a proper foundation for virtually every relationship they're going to have in their lifetime.
