Your children are siblings and it is important that you educate them so that they learn to love and respect each other from a young age.
Many people feel the word brother as blood, but the reality is that in order to be a real brother, not only does it unite with blood, but actions are what make people love each other and take care of themselves. If you have children, then you know that the fight between them can seem endless.
It is necessary to work on the relationship between siblings so that when they are older they love and respect each other. A beautiful sibling relationship is the most wonderful thing there is. It is true that a bad relationship between siblings can drive parents crazy , it is quite normal and even healthy for children to fight (to some extent). But of course, where is the line of normal and non-normal? How can you be sure that your children will grow up and really get along as adults
There really are some ways to raise children so that they love each other as siblings and that when they grow up, they continue to have that love for each other. Thus, the day that as parents and as nature dictates, you are no longer in this world, they will continue to be family and maintain a strong and unbreakable bond.
KEYS FOR SIBLINGS TO LOVE EACH OTHER
It is important that even if your children are now teenagers and you have not yet begun to work on these values, you should know that it is not too late either. But the ideal is to start when children are young as it is a wonderful opportunity to start. Make sure you teach your children the importance of getting along and being kind to others. In order to achieve this, you will have to be a good example and model your behavior.
Teach them a family team mentality
Human beings are inherently selfish. It is more or less a survival mechanism. So what parents have to do is socialize their children with the ‘us mentality’. You have to tell your children that they are a team. In fact, the whole family is a team. Everyone’s actions affect others. If you remind them enough times, it will sink into their hearts over time and they will act on it.
Positive discipline is important to work on conflict between people. If there are usually yelling at home, it is normal for your children to yell too. The ideal is to learn to sit quietly and solve problems in a more rational way. Positive discipline needs to be kept in mind for conflict resolution at home.
If you don’t tend to work through conflict rationally, now is the time to start working on your conflict skills. Once you have learned to solve your own problems, then you can teach your children to do the same. Not before. Sit down with them and speak out of respect and love, there is always a positive way to ‘fight’.
Rejoice together for the achievement of another
In a team, the achievement of one is the achievement of all. In this sense, if one of your children won a basketball championship, then it is important that you celebrate it as a family. Get the children to congratulate each other and even when the children feel a little jealous at first. It is positive to encourage them to do the best they can and even if they are not the best, to be proud of them. All your children are unique and have their own idiosyncrasies.
Respect for personal space
Personal boundaries are important to many people. And when boundaries are crossed, conflict usually ensues. Teach your kids that sometimes people just need to be alone. If they want to borrow a toy or other possession, they must ask permission at all times. They shouldn’t just ‘take’ from someone else and assume that everything will be fine. Asking permission is showing respect.
