In therapy at Care Counseling, you may work as a family to repair sibling dynamics, develop routines, learn tools to address the root of the conflict, and help siblings learn to compromise.
Sibling relationships can be incredibly important when it comes to child development. A child’s relationship with their siblings offers a valuable opportunity for relationship building and social learning. Because of the long-term, close nature of these relationships, conflict is expected. Learning to traverse conflict with their siblings is an important aspect of a child’s development. Due to many possible factors, some siblings are unsuccessful in learning to navigate conflict. Sibling concerns could be related to family dynamics, unexpected life events, or even sibling demographics, like birth order or differences in age. While some conflict is expected, when conflict begins to affect your child’s daily life, it may be time to seek help. Intense battles, bullying, estrangement, and conflict that impacts mental health may all be signs that it’s time to get help. Seeking counseling can help your family develop skills in navigating conflict, regulating emotions, and have a non-judgmental space to feel heard.
