Sibling rivalry can be a silent problem

Posted on 10/5/2016 by Greg Yoder
We have four kids. When they were younger, sibling rivalry was pretty intense. All but one are adults now, but it’s still there. Even in the most loving families sibling rivalry exists. Each of our kids either thinks they don’t quite measure up to the other, or they believe we as parents favor one over all the others. How do we combat this? We’ll never completely get to the root of the issues, but we need to make sure each one of our kids is valued, no matter how well they respect us, do well in school, or honor our values. They’ve got to see unconditional love. Each of our kids have gifts and abilities that we need to recognize, praise, and celebrate. As each has received God’s gift, encourage them to use it to serve one another.
