Sibling rivalry wouldn’t exist if only parents knew how to handle children better.
Coping with sibling rivalry could be very stressful, we all seem to face it somewhere and sometime in our lives. It actually needs to be dealt with in childhood so that it doesn’t surface in our relationships in adulthood. If left undealt it creates major family disputes and unpleasantness in the closest of relationships leading to immense stress.
Accept your reality
Causes of conflict
Clash of personality
Teach your kids to appreciate each other
One child maybe a reader, the other loves physical activity. Do not compare. Try and show them both good in each other, so that they can appreciate each other’s qualities. Make them both feel equally valued in your eyes. They will both bond better.
Encourage team spirit
Between siblings this goes a long way in creating a stress free personality. If they feel they are a team working towards the same goal, they will feel aligned towards each other.
Lend a listening ear
Emphasise on family bonding
Be a good role model
Children unconsciously follow their parents. Show adequate love and good behaviour so that they can come up with problem solving solutions. Emotional grounding is the vital ingredient of a person. If our relationship issues are resolved then we are very well adjusted humans. Ready to give and receive love.
