    What are the best ways to manage sibling rivalry?

    Parents sometimes get very frustrated with the fighting among their children. What steps can parents take to lessen sibling conflict?

    Give each of them one of the same item, never buy short of one because they felt unfairness, do not buy if you cannot afford。 same goes with money, do not give them, then no rivalry

      Thanks for your response peachpurple, I like  your suggestion for sometimes sibling conflict results from children feeling they are unfairly treated by their parent(s).

    Using the healing attributes of crystals a family or group with any conflict can begin to positively communicate and heal the known and unknown issues separating them from happiness.

    If you are looking to get to the root of an issue, Fuchsite, also known as green Muscovite, is a great stone for resetting the balance.

    You really cannot.  Sibling rivalry is quite de rigueur in families where there are 2 or more children per family.  It is very natural for siblings to vie for parental attention and resources.  The more children per family, the more intense and virulent the sibling rivalry.  This cannot be stopped.  The only time that there isn't sibling rivalry is to have one child.  One child, no rivalry. 

    Any time parents opt to have more than one child, there is going to be sibling rivalry in one form or another.   Also, in the multichild family dynamic, there tend to be favoritism.  It is natural in multichild families for parents to like and favor one child or some children over the other children in the family.  Conversely, in multichild families, there is one child or some children in the family who are going to be disfavored, even scapegoated by the parents.  Such occurrences of favoritism and being disfavored are normative in the multichild family environment. No matter how hard the parent tries to manage sibling rivalry, sibling rivalry abounds in multichild families and there is no escaping this fact. Welcome to the world of the multichild family......

      Thanks for commenting Grace. I agree that it can be difficult to manage sibling rivalry. However, I feel that there are steps parents can take to teach important skills and reduce the level of conflict.
