Sibling love...

So I have been looking at some old and new posts on Moms.com, Facebook, Twitter and Motherhood and have found that some children are not so nice to their siblings! There will always be little arguments but some kids are just awful to each other! I don't know if it is the school they attend, their parents or what but it really hurts my heart when I see it. Do your kids get along? Why are some kids like this?

    There's no such thing as a perfect world and children have to be taught how to treat one another and that doesn't happen overnight, it's a process as with anything we teach our children. And yes, our own example can affect our children as can what we allow them to get away with or not. Personalities also play into it. Some children, just like adults are peacemakers, others stir up trouble and the trouble makers need to be steered away from that tendency and taught to restrain themselves and think of others before their own pleasure. There are so many factors, but the key is to do our best to instill in our children to treat others as they want to be treated.

    Thanks, I thought it was so weird but I suppose that plays a major role as well.

      i am a mother of 3, they have the usal sibiling disagreements! but they are lost without eachother. lol i just taught my little ones manners and problem solving! and well ive never ever had to deal with an all out brawl or anything like that, when they have their issues, i can sit there and watch them as they fix the situation properly, sometimes i do got to get in there and make a point of a situation, they are 3, 4 & 6 so very close in age, i personally think that closeness in age, has alot to do with how they treat eachother, i mean their kinda on the same page.:)

      Please don't worry!! Brynlee was an only child for 2 years as well and during my whole pregnancy I worried that she would hate Bentley! But she is the best sister ever and loves him soo much! Its all about easing Ryan into the baby, talking to both of them, making any room or food changes early so Ryan doesn't feel replaced

        That's what I mean, make big changes prior to the new baby coming home and the transition will go smoother!

          We went early, at about 15 months but I would consider 18-25 months a normal time. And also congratulations on your new baby
