It may be hard to control siblings from fighting, but there are still ways to inculcate good habits into the kids so that it strengthens their bond. Follow these tips and nurture better sibling relationships among your children.
Siblings see each other everyday and there will always be issues when they end up in a quarrel or make mistakes. Make sure that they apologise to each other sincerely and admit their mistakes because they will make a habit out of a simple “I’m sorry” – which can hold no meaning.
It’s common for siblings to argue over each other’s belongings, so it’s important to make sure that they share their belongings equally.
Helping one another
Siblings sometimes may refuse to help each other, but a parent can step in to assign some duties for siblings to help each other. For example, the kid who is better at math can help coach his brother, and his brother can then return the favour by helping to hang his laundry.
Spending time together
It’s important for siblings to spend quality time together in order to get to know each other better and understand what one another is going through. It’s great if the whole family can spend time together but the siblings can have their alone time too.
Do not condone fighting
To avoid heated arguments and bad feelings for each other, fighting should never be allowed under any circumstances. No amount of screaming and violence will help any situation, so make it a clear rule that the kids follow.
