How to Encourage Good Sibling Relationships

We are very fond of an article by Katherine Lee that provides strategies for parents to promote healthy relationships between siblings.  These strategies are very functional and easy to apply at home.


Her article covers nine steps to encouraging good sibling relationships:

1) Do not compare your children to each other.

2) Try to suss out what’s behind the sibling conflicts.

3) Teach them to appreciate their differences.

4) Have them work on chores as a project or team.

5) Encourage good listening skills.

6) Teach them to respect each other.

7) Show them how to disagree respectfully.

8) Have fun together as a family.

9) Emphasize what family bonds really mean.
