Advice on solving fights between siblings

You first of all have to accept the fact that problems between siblings are normal and lasting. When a small child realizes that his brother has more privileges and freedom that he, he will be upset and there will always be a time when the older sibling with get tired of having his little brother following him around all the time. What is important is that they be taught mutual respect and that they learn how to solve their own problems.Below is some advice on solving fights between siblings: Never, ever compare one with the other so they won't become competitors. Try to be balanced but not equal; if it is one child's birthday don't buy a gift for them both because it is the birthday child's special day. On the other hand, be fair and let the birthday child break the pinata and let the other child gather the candies. Do not let them tattle on each other; make them understand that creating problems within the family is not good. You must make them understand at the same time that if one of them is in danger you need to be told. Do not get involved in their arguments, try as much as possible to let them solve their own problems. Of course if your younger child is very small and the end result is shouting and tears and you see that they are getting out of control, try to make peace between them and listen to each one's reason and help them solve their problem. Children are always going to fight over the same toy, and the best thing you can do is establish a specific place for the each child's toys, teaching them if one wants to take something from there they must ask their sibling's permission. If children reach a point where they are fighting too much, try having one spend the day with mom and the other with dad, so as to calm the situation.
