Episode 76: When one child feels pushed around by their sibling with Hillary H
When one child feels pushed around by their sibling with Hillary H
Hillary is a mom of two daughters and her youngest is starting to complain about her sister's bossyness. As the older child she tends to jump in at every turn to take over. She’s there to let her know how to do everything and tends to reinforce what mom said. Hillary would love to learn how to help her younger child have more opportunities to lead and help her first born back off a bit. Listen along for some strategies for teaching your children respectful communication with each other and to avoid feeling pushed around.
“I also think that having a conversation with Louisa about having her not agree to everything is important. So rather than you being the one to step in and telling Frankie to stop doing everything she’s doing, that it's okay to help Louisa learn how to do it herself.” - Sue Groner
