There is nothing more exciting than seeing your children get along. When your children get along it makes for a much happier home. Just like with any other relationship, there will be good days and bad days. Here are a few tips to help your children find more good days than bad and build life long bonds:
Lead By Example
You are their best example. Children are sponges and are always watching to see what you do. If you show love and compassion they most likely will too.
Create activities where they rely on each other. By creating these bonds early, they will know they have a person they can always count on.
Let’s face it – we live in a time where selfishness is extremely prevalent. Sharing their toys, friends and heck even parents teaches them to love each other and act as a team.
Playtime is one of the easiest ways to teach your children to love each other. By having fun with one another they begin to understand and appreciate the other persons differences that make them special.
Teach them that everything isn’t always going to go their way. By showing them to have understanding for the other persons way of doing things can make more likely to tolerate others way of doing things.
Whether it’s a kiss goodbye or a hug to say I’m sorry, these forms of affection show love and respect for one another.
