How Parents Can Avoid Creating Sibling Rivalry Part -3

Stay out of Squabbles

This one might surprise you, but do you know the best thing you can do when a disagreement starts to brew? Ignore it. That’s right, go find something else to do in another room. Don’t give the squabble any attention. As long as they don’t start fighting, screaming and throwing things, let them sort it out on their own. It actually could teach them negotiating skills.

By ignoring the tussle, you don’t reward negative behavior with your attention and most importantly, you give them a chance to work it out on their own. If the fight escalates into a physical throw down or you really feel like intervening is necessary, you can use the next two steps to guide your interactions when you do get involved.

Calm the Conflict - If your kids clearly can’t reach an agreement, or if the fight escalates, you might have to step in. Whatever you do, don’t take sides. You might think you heard or saw what started or who started the argument, but don’t place any judgment on either party.

Instead, once everyone is calm, listen to each child’s version of what happened and then, without placing blame or taking sides, ask them to come up with some solutions together. If no one is able to come up with a workable resolution, suggest a few yourself, and help them reach an agreement. Whatever you do don't take sides. Read More

One year, Johnny's family was having the "extended family" 4th of July cookout at their home. One of the special treats that year was the lighting of the fireworks (Roman candles, bottle rockets, mis s i l e batteries, etc.) they had bought out of state, because they are illegal in their state, of course!

Just before they were to arrive, a cousin calls, saying their neighbor's plans had just fallen through, and could they bring them along to the picnic. They even had extra food to bring. I said, "Sure, the more the merrier!"

Upon arrival it was discovered that the neighbor was a police officer. The father turned as innocently as he could to Johnny and whispered to him, "Grab the paper bag of fireworks sitting in the kitchen and hide them somewhere quickly." Johnny disappeared.

The father changed the topic to food for the day. The family had brought some chicken to grill, so the father told them the gas grill was all set to use out back saying, "Just turn on the gas and push the ignition button with the lid still closed."

They head out to the back, as Johnny came back in through the front door. The father hurried to him and said "Whew, that was close! That man is a police officer, and he almost saw the fireworks. Did you hide them really well?"

"Oh, yes! Nobody will ever think to look in the grill!"
