Sibling Rivalry...

Do you have sibling rivalry going on in your daily lives between your children? Why can’t they just get along? Does it seem that they are jealous, or trying to compete for your attention?

Sibling Rivalry happens in some cases right after the second child is born, and it very well might continue throughout their childhood. Don’t be alarmed, you can work through this.

Your children are trying to find his or her own voice, and if they feel their voice is not being heard; because of the other sibling; then it can turn into a rivalry.

Parents try to give each child your undivided attention: Try to give your child their own special day, or their own special time. Your child wants to share with you their own special talents and success that they have done.

Just remember you don’t ever want to label them; don’t play favorites. You love them both equally, you need to always keep in mind that they need to know how much you do.

Snacks, Snacks, and More Snacks...

Does your child(ren) keep coming to you, telling you they want more to eat? Even though you just got done cleaning up from making breakfast, lunch, or dinner? This is called, “grazing” in other words snacks, snacks, and more snacks. Try to create a healthy grazing/snack pattern throughout their day. Try to give your child(ren) snacks that are high in protein and low in sugar; this will help to stretch out their energy. The reason you should stay away from foods and drinks that contain a high amount of sugar in them; is because your child(ren) can get a boost from the sugar of course meaning a (sugar high), and then next thing you know they crash...

Example: Snack Foods That Have Protein

Peanut Butter

Just to name a few...

Be creative, before preparing the snacks. Get some cute little cookie cutters. Make your snacks into cute little kid friendly shapes; have your child(ren) depending on how old they are become mommies little helper, and have them help you prepare the snacks; “get them involved.” After all is prepared, make a picnic on the floor or in your own backyard

Happy Snacking...
