As children, I’m sure whatever type of relationship we had with our siblings, we can remember clashing, arguing and fighting from time to time. Conflict is a natural part of growing up and will arise in all areas of life. Asserting our personalities, understanding our family dynamics and how we fit is all part of learning and understanding.
However, there can come a time when siblings often don’t see eye to eye, argue frequently and just can’t seem to be left alone together without an incident erupting. This is upsetting and exhausting for you as parents or guardians trying to deal with the issues and dynamics. We can be so exhausted and frustrated when trying to resolve this, we may not realise the impact it has on our kids, which can create anxiety and impact confidence and sense of self.
