Coming up in Episode 15 Sibling Rivalry
Sibling rivalry has always had a bad press – think of Cain slaughtering Abel and Joseph being thrown down the well and sold by his brothers because they were jealous of his beautiful multi coloured coat!
Sibling rivalry can apply to any child living in the same family, from stepbrothers and sisters to blood related brothers and sisters – and it refers to the jealousy, competition, teasing and fighting that goes on between them – and all the experts seem to agree that it stems from your child’s deep desire and need for your exclusive love – and their need for your attention and their sense of identity, self-worth and specialness within your family.
We’ll be looking at why siblings fight and what to do about it.
