Good morning, Hubbers! This week’s WTI is about brothers and sisters.
Raising siblings takes extra patience and energy, but it’s also wonderfully rewarding. Do you have advice and tips to offer from your experience rearing multiple children? Did your own parents develop some clever methods of handling you and your siblings growing up? We invite you to share your advice on parenting two or more in our new Topic page Parenting Siblings.
Ideas for exceptional Hubs include advice for specific situations like encouraging older siblings to help out, helping your kids develop brotherly and sisterly love, and handling sibling rivalry issues.
To join in on this week's challenge by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
2) Click the green "answer this question" button.
3) Instead of answering the question in short form, click the gray "make a Hub about it" button.
4) Give your Hub a title that follows our guidelines on crafting successful, competitive, search-friendly titles, which namely involves...
A. Creating a title that is short and descriptive, matching what someone would type into a search engine when looking for information on the subject.
B. Researching the keywords (the things people might type into search engines) by Googling them to make sure that the topic is not already extensively covered online and that you can beat the top results.
C. Covering a subject about which you are particularly passionate- or in which you have unique, useful expertise.
5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
6) Make sure the images you use are legally used and properly attributed so that your Hub has a chance of being selected as a Hub of the Day.
7) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this Forum Discussion and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.

Hi everyone, thanks for your responses! Check out this week's new Weekly Topic Inspiration here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/110449#post2350075
Here is a link to my hub in which I titled "Tips For Raising Your Kids." It discusses setting rules in the household, helping your children to learn patience, dealing with sibling rivalry, dealing with your child not loving oneself, and a story from my youth.

Hi MarieAlana1, this is a wonderful hub with very helpful tips. I especially like the tip about helping children learn to love themselves.
Awesome, thanks for sharing, MarieAlana1!
Hello Christy and hubbers.
Here is my hub about parenting siblings:

Have a nice week all,
Fabulous Hub, avorodisa! I especially like the part about showing your emotions. So many people feel like they have to be stoic to show authority, but emotions can be so effective with children!
You have some wonderful tips about how to handle siblings. The accompanying photos are really cute and go perfectly with the content.
Excellent hub, avorodisa. You said it quite well.
I am a mother of three children. I spent a lot of time trying to get my children to love and support each other and not fight. I share the tips and tricks I've used in my hub, "Parenting Tips for Raising Siblings". I talk about how tio do deal with sibling rivalry, getting older kids to help with younger ones, and helping kids to share. http://kidnappedkids.hubpages.com/hub/P … -Your-Mind
Excellent! In addition to enjoying reading your tips, I learned a few things about training siblings. I'm a grandmother now, but there are times when I still have an opportunity to be knowledgeable in such things.
Awesome Hub, kidnappedkids! I especially like the part about honoring the unique personalities of children rather than trying to make them do the same things.
My hub is: Creative Ways to Handle Sibling Rivalry. We do some unique things at our house to ensure that we will all be playing for the same team. My husband and I have tried to be very intentional about teaching love and loyalty in a kid-friendly way. And I loved writing this hub because it gave me an excuse to use cute photos of my kids http://expectgreatthings.hubpages.com/h … ng-Rivalry
Excellent hub, EGT-loved it and shared it. Your kids are cuties.
Love it, ExpectGreatThings!
P.S. Your husband's car playground t-shirt is absolutely genius!
Thank you Christy! I found the t-shirt idea on Pinterest and also thought it was genius And, sorry I didn't do the WTI-make-a-hub right. I'll figure it out someday!
No worries! You'll have lots more chances (since I DO hope you'll keep the good Hubs comin').

I wrote about my experience of raising teenagers from the perspective of a single mom. I chose this topic because it was offered as an exclusive title, and since my kids are in mid-adolescence, I can update for several years more with new info as ideas and thoughts come to me!
