Good Sibling Relationships | Kira Dorrian and Deana Thayer | Episode 175

Kids arguing, not cutting each other slack, or ignoring each other can really push parents’ buttons. This isn’t the dream we had when we brought home that second little bundle of joy. We imagined our kids growing up together and having strong sibling relationships. We imagined them playing together and supporting each other throughout life. But sibling relationships aren’t always like that. We may deal with sibling rivalry, arguing, and turbulent times. Yet, we know sibling relationships are important for our children. Kira Dorrian and Deana Thayer join Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler to discuss sibling relationships and sibling rivalry. They cover the reason sibling relationships are so important and the parents’ role in those relationships. They talk about how to foster strong sibling bonds and what a healthy sibling relationship looks like.
