I have come across this topic before and I honestly didn’t take notice of it because I never have had any experience with it much more with my siblings. Although we argue a lot, which I think is very common among children and with siblings, but we sometimes agree on some stuffs we like in common and we fight when we were little, and so does my two kids now. Siblings are those people who, even though we never see eye to eye at times, they are always there to have your back no matter what.
Sibling rivalry is just normal among kids with different age gaps, different gender or with different interests. We must understand that not all siblings have the same tastes on clothes, or have the same opinions and or the same point of views on trivial matters or have the same level of understanding or have the same talents, or of the same age - even twins do argue mind you - and so forth. In short, everyone has its own uniqueness and character, not just siblings but people per se. This small fights and arguments though are perfectly normal among children but it can escalate to a much bigger problem among parents if not dealt with properly.
Here are my top four reasons why sibling fight or have “sibling rivalry”:
3 AGE DIFFERENCE
4. PARENTAL PRAISE
So, parents have a great impact and or influence in their children’s lives, because you’re the first one to teach them at home. Be careful on what you say to them and avoid comparing your children among each other because it is never healthy to compare. Remember that each children we have are unique and we should treat them with the same equal respect and with equal love.
