      Peace Begins at Home: 6 Tips for Siblings

      "Haven't we evolved and learned that war is not an
      Alex, age 15

      The state of the world has been on the mind of so many of the families I work
      with. Too many wars, too much aggression, too much not caring about each other
      and the planet. It's created an underlying anxiety even for the youngest kids
      who are exposed to the news in their living rooms. One tense teen asked,
      "Haven't we evolved and learned that war is not an answer?" In his mind, it's
      hard to fight someone who doesn't want to fight you back, so if everyone would
      decide not to fight, war could end.

      Although we may not be able to do anything about what's happening acros the
      globe, surely we can do something about what's right in front of us. Peace can
      begin at home - starting with brothers and sisters.

      Like nine-year-old Lars. All he wanted from his big brother was peace. He hated
      arguing over video games and TV, and was hurt and angry at the older one's
      constant teasing. Or six-year-old Taylor's jealousy of her three-year-old
      brother. Although she longed for a sibling, it was different once Riley was
      born. Taylor flip-flopped between loving hugs and dangerous squeezing.

      Kids tell me they want positive interactions with their siblings. But buttons
      get pushed, defenses go up, and friction abounds. We all play a crucial role.
      Cooperation, empathy, kindness, fair play, and self-control don't always come
      naturally to children; they are skills taught through practice, just like
      making a bed and riding a bike.

      If you want to encourage kindness and generosity, let kids see yours. To foster
      self-control, watch how you respond to frustration and anger. Each conflict is
      a learning opportunity and a child's imagination makes a great study partner.
      Even ten-year-old Melody, who couldn't speak up to her big bossy sister,
      conjured up an imaginary Wizard who coached her to say, "No" in a strong and
      clear voice.
