Rules for Siblings

You want your kids to do more than just get along with each other. You want them to be best friends.

Teaching kids to love and respect each other begins by laying a strong foundation while they’re still young. And foundations are built on clear-cut rules and principles.

Such as the importance of being honest. Strong families have to be able to trust each other without question. After all, if you can’t trust your brothers and sisters, who else can you turn to?

It’s also important to respect each other’s privacy. Kids need to know that home is a safe place to be — a place where they feel comfortable and secure. That means no rummaging through each other’s things or “borrowing” them without permission.

Learning to forgive and forget is another critical principle. We all make mistakes, and a little compassion goes a long way toward building a strong family bond.
