Ep 107: Sibling Harmony

This episode is about how you can achieve sibling harmony.
Now let me start by being totally honest and upfront – sibling rivalry, disagreements and fall outs are normal. Your children will want to kill each other at times and really dislike each other most of the rest of the time – and that’s normal, you aren’t a bad parent, we don’t all get along with everyone!

However, there are things we do as parents which can make the situation worse, which we need to stop doing, and there are strategies we can employ to help give our children the tools to manage difference.

Here are the highlights:
{3:25} Sibling arguments are normal
{5:25} Comparisons
{8:25} Siblings won’t necessarily like each other
{12:10} Don’t referee what you don’t see
{19:27} Children are entitled to get annoyed or jealous
{21:50} Children measure time differently and may feel marginalised
