Raising Twins - I Have My Training Wheels On

<a href="/blogs/rebeccarobinson/2011/10/19/raising-twins-i-have-my-training-wheels-on">Raising Twins - I Have My Training Wheels On</a>

I kind of knew that some interesting sibling dynamics were up the sleeve of life. However intellectual I have been about it, there is always something humbling about actually living it. My 4 year old has a different relationship with each of his sisters - we have tried to encourage this ... that each kid is unique and there will be things you don't and do like about each other, and at different times. That's cool. But you see, one of the girls isn't walking yet - it fits with her personality ... So kindy boy has taken a liking to his sister - the one who is walking and running and able to follow his commands. Read full article

Peacekeeping and Parenting - A Lesson from Chickens and a Dog

<a href="/blogs/catherinesim/2011/05/18/peacekeeping-and-parenting-a-lesson-from-chickens-and-a-dog">Peacekeeping and Parenting - A Lesson from Chickens and a Dog</a>

Every cell in their bodies is organised to communicate that having the blue shovel or the green balloon is the key to their happiness—a yellow shovel or a red balloon simply won't do. But as any parent who has tried to enforce sharing knows, taking turns at those moments is far easier said than done. 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
