JerseyJulia Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 If your kids get along extraordinarily well or extraordinarily poor, please respond to this thread. Sometimes we hang out with kids (siblings) in our homeschool group (for hours----not just a few minutes) and I am amazed at how well they get along. Four families come to mind. My two get along OK, but nothing like these examples I'm thinking of. So....what is it that makes kids get along so splendidly? (and I can tell it's not just a put on in these families). And, three of them have BIG age gaps (by big I mean 4 to 6 + year gap)! So, what's the recipe for a good/bad sibling turn-out? I SOOOOO want mine to get along this beautifully. Mine aren't allowed to be disrespectful to one another, etc. but they just don't DESIRE one another's companionship like these families' kids. If you're one of these who has kids that get along remarkably well, what's your secret? Tell me about it/how they get along/the general dynamic. What do you think contributed to this? (Please list genders/ages/etc). My curiosity on this has got me out of lurking.... I just can't put my finger on it. By the way, my sons are 5 years apart, ages 11 and 5. ~Julia Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
