In this episode of At Home, Kristin Rogers leads the discussion on sibling bickering. Like Kristin says, bickering is something that can drive an otherwise sane parent absolutely bonkers! And since this is something we all deal with in our own homes, we thought you might be too. That’s why we’re talking about it today.
Our discussion ranges from why dealing with bickering matters, to common causes for bickering, and some of the ways we handle it.
None of us profess to have the magic answer. But knowing we’re all in it together helps a bit. And we hope our own experiences and ideas will help too. Especially in those hard moments, when you’re tempted to throw in the towel.
And as much as we don’t like to be faced with this truth, we know us mamas set the tones in our homes. Let’s make these words from Proverbs our goal, as well as our children’s: “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”
Don’t give up the fight friends! A peaceful home is worth fighting for.
