Build Sibling Relationships through Games 🎲 Find some games that allow your children to work on the same team.  Whether it be board games, sport or imaginative play, this is a good strategy for them to build a stronger relationship with each other.  Comparison games, like running races and winner/loser games can drive that wedge between them.

Easter is upon us, which means time with family for us 🐇 How great is this Easter craft with ground up egg shells. Trace or print an outline of a bunny or any animal. Use washed egg shells smashed up into tiny pieces. Cover the inside of the bunny outline with pva glue and sprinkle on. You could also look in the yard for anything your child resembles as a tail. Such a beautiful and earthy look 🥚🐇 . . . pic via Pinterest. #allheartparenting #pos#positiventing #positive #parents #mumsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #beh#behaviourgement #behaviour #gentleparenting #kindparenting #tantrums #toddlers #babies #children #kids #calm #love #kindness #childbehaviour #lovingparents #aussieparents #goldcoastparents #teacher #primaryteacher #counsellor

🌾 5 Tips to Build Positive Sibling Relationships ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4.  Don't Step in too Soon 👬 It can be so tempting for a parent to jump in between a sibling quarrel and stop it.  As I have stated in my previous posts by doing this we stop the learning opportunity that has arisen.  Of course, if they are being physical with each other, I'm not saying grab some popcorn and pull up a chair.  What I am saying is you can be a commentator on the situation and let them work out how to solve the problem. Eg: "I can see that both of you want to play with the Tonka truck, but there is only one Tonka truck here to play with"......."I wonder how we are going to work out what to do next..." This can be a patience game and with more practice your children will learn strategies to solve these problems they will face often. . . . #allheartparenting #pos#positiventing #positive #parents #mumsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #beh#behaviourgement #behaviour #gentleparenting #kindparenting #tantrums #toddlers #babies #children #kids #calm #love #kindness #childbehaviour #lovingparents #aussieparents #goldcoastparents #teacher #primaryteacher #counsellor

🌾 5 Tips to Build Positive Sibling Relationships ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Spending time with each child Alone 👩‍👦 Spending time alone with each child will help build that strong relationship between a caring parent and child.  Children love having that one on one time without their siblings around to have all their parents attention.  Even a quick 10 minutes to spend outside in the garden, or a quick trip to the park alone can help eleviate any resentful sibling rivalry. . . . #allheartparenting #pos#positiventing #positive #parents #mumsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #beh#behaviourgement #behaviour #gentleparenting #kindparenting #tantrums #toddlers #babies #children #kids #calm #love #kindness #childbehaviour #lovingparents #aussieparents #goldcoastparents #teacher #primaryteacher #counsellor #siblings

A new day upon us means lots of positive ways to spend it. If I'm feeling frazzled or stressed at the start of the day, I take a deep breath and remind myself that I am in control of my emotions and the days I focus on being positive and happy are always the best days. 🌼👌 . . . #allheartparenting #pos#positiventing #positive #parents #mumsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #beh#behaviourgement #behaviour #gentleparenting #kindparenting #tantrums #toddlers #babies #children #kids #calm #love #kindness #childbehaviour #lovingparents #aussieparents #goldcoastparents #teacher #primaryteacher #counsellor #breathe #positivevibes #newday #justbreathe
