I've been reading the sibling squabble sanity savers you've posted and I have to tell you I just love them! And the best part is that you offer solutions with great oldie-but-goodie ideas: simple, no-cost ideas that every mom can instantly use. Once you teach them to your kids they will use them forever to stop their own squabbles.
Here are the four best parenting secrets moms have passed on to stop their kids annoying sibling battles. (And thank you for sending them. I know other moms will appreciate them as well).
1. Teaching kids rock, paper, scissors to figure out who goes first
2. Purchasing an egg timer or oven timer so each kid gets the same amount of time (to watch the TV show or use the equipment or whatever)
3. Teaming kids up so they have to get along if they want the weekend activity
4. Laugh therapy - sitting on the floor together and laughing it out.
Thanks for passing them on!!! These are great, practical ideas we can all use.
