I have two brothers and one sister and they are my best friends in the whole world. I talk to them multiple times a week and sometimes even daily. I can’t imagine how live would be without them and I am so thankful that we all get along so well.
We often hear about sibling fights, sibling rivalry and while this is certainly the case for some families, my siblings and I have always been really close. We’re close in age which I personally think helps, but my parents also made some parenting decisions that helped encourage the positive relationship between all of us.
I hope the same thing for my kids too — it’s one of the reasons we have as many kids as we do because they can be a lifelong built in support group and that’s important. While I understand that things may not always be as smooth-going as they are now, I am happy that my kids get along as well as they do already. I hope with some gentle encouragement along the way they will always be as close as they are now & your kids can be too!
