Sibling Rivalry Workshop

When it comes to child development, sibling relationships can be incredibly important. Siblings represent a child's first social network, and these early relationships provide training ground for social learning and relationship building. There are many factors that influence why siblings fight depending on sibling demographics, family dynamics, and unexpected life events. 

Our Sibling Rivalry workshop helps parents successfuly intervene in sibling conflict with the right knowledge and parenting techniques. 

  • Learn when to step in as a parent and when to let your children sort out their differences
  • Conflict resolution strategies to reduce aggression in kids and bring them down to a calmer state to discuss their issues
  • How to effectively use the power of compromise to resolve sibling disputes while satisfying both parents and their children.
