More Loving Moments Together
”I’m more calm and in control. I think before taking action. I try to be more consistent. I have more loving moments together and just a happier household.”
Alexandra – Mum of two
When you have small children at home, it is completely normal for the children to argue and fight from time to time.
You know sibling rivalry is an issue when…
- Your day to day life is spoilt by the constant bickering.
- You find yourself tense and anxious – worried about the next fuss.
- You realise that one (or more) of your children are being physically hurt in their own home, and you know that isn’t ok.
- You don’t know how to stop the fighting.
- You are constantly being called upon to sort out petty fights and arguments.
- You worry about leaving your children alone in a room, for fear of what may happen.
- The children let themselves (and you) down, in front of family and friends, with petty arguments and sometimes hurting each other. And you don’t know how to prevent it.
- You’re surprised at how spiteful and malicious your children can be, and are worried that, if it goes on outside the home, your children could become bullies.
- You are concerned that, if this sort of nastiness continues, their friendships and relationships could be badly affected.
- On their own your children are lovely, but when together, they change, and become jealous, argumentative and mean.
- Your weekends and family holidays are ruined by frequent and occasionally vicious arguments.
- You feel shocked that, despite you bringing up the children well, they can be so volatile and spiteful at times.
How is it affecting you?
- Is the atmosphere at home causing you to feel stressed and upset?
- Are you having more arguments with your partner over how to deal with the fights? Or because you each side with a different child?
How is it affecting your children?
- Do your children hate being at home, because of all the fusses?
- Is home life for your children a battle? With bullying, teasing and spitefulness?
- Could one of your children feel bullied in their own home? Where they can’t escape?
- Is one of your children repeatedly teased or belittled?
- Do your children sometimes sustain injuries, caused by a brother or sister punching, pinching or pulling their hair?
