PARENT CORNER: Improving communication between your children
1.Scenario: Complaining about the other sibling. Instead of dismissing negative feelings about a sibling, acknowledge the feeling. Example "You feel River teases you just to irritate you." My kids want their feeling acknowledged and this statement lets them know they are heard and they will often tell me more after hearing I understand.
2. Scenario" Sibling are name calling or putting each other down. Instead of telling my child to stop name calling or saying that is not nice, try getting them to express how they are felling and set a boundary of no name calling. Example: "You sound furious, please tell John how you are feeling without name calling".
3. Scenario: My children want me to be the judge and decide who is right or should get something first. Instead of listening to both sides and then laying down a punishment, I ask them, "I can see that you are upset but I trust that you can work this out with your brother and find a compromise."
