Ask Dr. G – Bickering Siblings

Parents with more than one child are probably all too familiar with this week’s topic in our Ask Dr. G podcast series: bickering siblings. In this episode, Dr. G tells us not only is this behavior normal, but it’s actually teaching kids valuable lessons.

It may be painful to listen to day in and day out, but your kids’ bickering is teaching them how to speak up for themselves, and for their own point of view. But it’s important to make sure it doesn’t escalate into bullying.

If you have your own questions for Dr. G, you can call her at the number listed under the podcast. Or, if you’d rather not call in, you can email her at the email address listed below the podcast.
