<a href="/articles/my-child-is-hitting-biting-pushing-helping-children-with-aggression">My Child is Hitting, Biting, Pushing - Helping Children with Aggression</a>

Has your child ever lashed out and hurt someone? Has another aggressive child ever bothered him? If your answer is yes, join the crowd! Almost all of us struggle with understanding and helping our children when they hurt others, and when they are hurt by other children. It's a shock to us the first time our sweet sons and daughters suddenly bite someone, or throw something at the new baby in the family. Here are some guiding principles for understanding and relieving children's aggression, so they can relax and enjoy their friends and siblings. Read full article

Why Did I Worry about Sibling Rivalry?

<a href="/blogs/sarahliebetrau/2011/06/03/why-did-i-worry-about-sibling-rivalry">Why Did I Worry about Sibling Rivalry?</a>

It’s funny, but I’ve noticed that in life, the things I really worry about happening are often the things that I don’t need to worry about. (It’s the things I don’t see coming that often blindside me!) Before our second child was born, I worried a lot about sibling rivalry ...

Looking back, it was excellent preparation for having four children, some of whom also try to tease their siblings to death. Read full article

<a href="/blogs/carolduncan/2010/08/05/sibling-rivalry-brothers-mothers-and-manlets">Sibling Rivalry - Brothers, Mothers and Manlets</a>

Wow, isn't this potentially murky territory? The love/hate relationship we can have with our own flesh and blood...The relationship between my own two sons swings wildly from love to warfare. Sometimes I worry about it; I worry that one day they will only have each other and I desperately hope that nothing comes between them. At least nothing of a permanent nature. They're such different people, as all our kids are I guess. Read full article
