Kids and conflict; whether it’s squabbling with siblings over toys, name calling, sibling rivalry or fighting over who had the green bowl first, every family has to deal with family conflict in one way or another, oftentimes on a daily basis. Today Madhavi Nawana Parker, our resident parenting expert and regular KIDDO mag columnist returns to KIDDO chats to talk with us about that dreaded c word. Conflict.
In this episode we really dive into conflict in families between siblings and how to teach kids practical skills to manage conflict in a healthy way, and how to model it ourselves. We talk through kids fighting for the sake of fighting, the difference between sibling conflict and sibling bullying, how to identify our child’s conflict resolution style and how to teach our kids to apologise in a meaningful way.
If you’ve ever asked yourself “why are my kids ALWAYS arguing with each other?” this is the episode for you!
