When the battle between siblings commences, parents can feel disarmed, crazed and helpless. When a good bond between siblings is established early, children can learn to manage conflict amicably hence rivalry can be significantly minimized. Once children learn to work through their differences, this important family bond can flourish and strengthen as they grow.
We invited Matthew Scott, Principal of Middleton International School and father of 3 children, and Stephanie Chalmers, Parent Educator and mother of 2 children, to share approaches to use these conflicts as teaching moments to help their children form a loving bond with each other.
