It all started with a funny travel quotes that my brother and I joked about but turned out into an argument. Siblings can have terrific sharing relationships with each other and can be the closest of friends. They live together, party together, eat together, laugh together, play games together, go window shopping together and worst is, fight together which we call as sibling rivalry. Well it is a normal part of growing up, but it can drive parents crazy. They key in minimizing this kind of quarrel fights is to let your kids work out their problems themselves and just step in if you need to be a supporter. Many things can lead to arguments between siblings such as boredom, favoritism, and misunderstandings. These misunderstandings between brothers and sisters are very common because it’s a part of growing up in the family and sometimes siblings get into conflict as they compete with each other for parents attention or approval. Boredom always starts a bit of picking and teasing each other and some calling each other names. Some sibling’s rivalry also starts with switching the TV off when the other is watching a program or making annoying noises such as whistling, shouting, running and many other more that could get your brother or sister’s head that could drive them crazy. I see to it that my children always have snacks available in their carrying bag because I know young children can easily become hungry and restless which cause them to feel bored and make lousy moves that could disturb other people. Favoritism can sometimes be an issue inside the family which makes it harder to deal with. Even if one of your kids is getting into trouble and the other is the innocent one, don’t compare your kids because it will only give them more reason to dislike their brother or sister. Giving the other child a special treatment can hurt the relationship between you and your children. Fighting will decrease as your children grow and develop better social and emotional skills. Personally, my children are learning how to figure out their differences by watching and copying behavior they see in their electronic devices or by adopting what they see in their environment. It’s completely normal for siblings especially toddlers to fight from time to time but when fighting increases to the point that one child is becoming emotionally and physically bullied, it needs to stop. Make sure your kids will follow the same rules which include no-name calling, no hitting, no damaging each other’s property or no pushing and many more reason that could hurt each other’s feelings. On the positive side, having an older sibling can help you in school because they are wiser and experienced. Another thing is you have someone to share your problems with and can talk about anything and everything under the sun. If you have problems, difficulties or worries your sibling will certainly listen to you. Nobody is perfect and I think it is still better to have siblings because someday all immature actions will disappear and each and every one of us is entitled to our own flaws which should be accepted as a family.
