Did you fight with your siblings growing up?
No one believes me, but I swear the first real fight I ever had with my brother was when he was 18 and I was 21, and we were both away at the same college and finally had “real” things to fight about.
It came as a total shock to me that children actually fight with each other verbally, physically, and emotionally when I had my own kids. A lot of it I owe to them being so close in age, but to me, that’s no excuse. So, I’ve had to change a few of my own parenting habits to encourage a healthier relationship between my two.
Come visit me over at The Golden Gleam where I share my 5 Ways To Deal With Sibling Rivalry that have worked in our house. What has worked for YOU? Please share with us here in the comments or over on Rebekah’s blog!
