Sibling squabbles are the worst, but we can help our kids be at peace with one another with God’s help. Raising children is such a wonderful experience in so many ways, but we also know how challenging it can be. I am not sharing this because I think this is what I think you should know. I am sharing this post because I hope it helps you and me in dealing with squabbles in the home.
Particularly, now my kids are at odds a lot. My daughter is 12 and my son is 8. My son gets on my daughter’s nerves by just breathing, it seems like. It actually break my heart sometimes. This post helped me to remember that we need to start with a biblical understanding of why it’s important for siblings to demonstrate love for one another in the first place. Alongside that, we should demonstrate selflessness and humility for our kids to follow. That’s tough, but with God we can do it.
