How do I make my home sing today? As a Stay At Home Mom to my 2 kids who are under 6 years old, my days most of the time are a riot. One minute, the 2 are like best friends and the next, they are shouting at each other and my little boy hits his big sister. It can get really tough. They fight about toys, space or attention! I know that this is a phase that kids go through, but I like them to learn from this phase. Sometimes, I let them "fight" it out but most of the time, I step in before it gets physical. My 2 year old still doesnt understand "sharing" so it can be quite hard. I have to be consistent and impartial in dealing with both of them. I try to cuddle my 2 year old when he is getting unreasonable and distract him. While my 5 year old, I talk with her. Give her other options.
I try to read books on parenting, good websites and the Bible to get more insights as to how I can deal with sibling rivalry. I know that God has tasked me to be the mom to these 2 kids and I have to do my job as a mother to train these children the way God wants me to.
Prov 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
