Weekend Gossip;Help My Kids Want To Turn Me Into A Judge

1 August 2020 Blog


I cant shout o.Wait am I alone in this matter,This lock down eh. The kids are sure up their necks with the frustration of being indoors and so naturally they are letting out their frustrations in many ways, I do not know how many times I have to clean the house in a day, eating in between meals to kill boredom, hmm I cook ooo,I tire, Chai, but we thank God for them

The matter I want you to help me with is how to settle the quarrel o, the kids have turned me into both lawyer and Judge, I have been settling cases since o,” Oyinbo” calls it sibling rivalry.Hmm come and see fight on top small matter

Sibling rivalry is the jealousy, competition and fighting between brothers and sisters.  It is a concern for almost all parents of two or more kids which may continue throughout childhood and can be very frustrating and stressful to parents. Every child is competing to discover themselves define who they are and once they think they do , They begin to show themselves

In my quest to find a solution , I read lots material on the issue online and found that children who are hungry, bored or tired are more likely to become frustrated and start fights.Little wonder then

Children may not know positive ways to get attention for a sibling or how to start playful activities, so they pick fights instead.So what to do? Try the following

1, Have no favorites, be fair always in your role as “Judge”

2.Teach your children tolerance and positive ways to express disagreement

3.Be creative, seek out ways to actively engage them,while at it you will bond and many benefits accrue

4.Try to understand their individual personalities, treat them as individuals,love them unconditionally,spend lots of quality time together as a family

5.Try to create time and space for each child,If you can afford it ,when you buy stuff let there be enough to go round. if not then teach them to take turns sharing.

Good Luck

Happy weekend
