Join me as we discuss:
How we often like to solve our sibling fighting issues.
How and why is not a good technique .
Alternatives to fixing problems, fights, or sibling quarrels...without our involvement! BOOM BABY!!
We all know that sound. "MINE!" It seems to echo down halls and vibrate the inner most parts of our soul...or devil. Whatever it is we hate dealing with sibling fighting.
And it's not even some noble thing where we want them to live in peace and harmony, but often because we hate the sound of it.
So to quench the shut-up gods we lurch out of our chairs and proceed to mitigate the problem ourselves.
"No Trevor. You are going to let your brother pick a movie because you picked last time." Sounds fair right? I say...no. You see this denies our kids the fundamental skill called negotiation and compromise. It doesn't allow kids to see each other as equals that have to resolve their conflicts themselves, but as those that have to find Mommy and Daddy as the judge, jury, and executioner.
What if I told you it didn't have to be that way. What if I told you that your kids are capable of handling their own fights, by themselves, even at 4 years old?
