Episode 73: When You’re Struggling with Sibling Rivalry Issues with Nikki B
When you’re struggling with sibling rivalry issues with Nikki B
Nikki is a mom to three boys, 5, 3 and 2-years old. Not surprisingly, she is struggling with sibling rivalry issues especially when the kids are playing all together. She is wondering how much of this has to do with their need for 1:1 mom time, and how to help her kids work through their issues by themselves. Listen along if you are tired of being your kid’s referee.
“I know you guys can figure this out together…Right? So now you’re giving them the power. You don’t want to be the referee and you also don’t want to be the judge.” - Sue Groner
