10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

While siblings are the force that breathes life into any family structure, it has also been seen as a challenge of sorts to manage siblings and bring out the best in each one of them. In any family unit, there are a number of entities who need to be nurtured in a certain way to ensure that their identities are not hampered by a "one size fits all" style of parenting. Every child is different and will need to be handled differently. Besides this, there are other related challenges that will contribute to the quality of the relationships between the siblings, as well as the rivalry that they may feel towards each other when it comes to attention, achievements and varied other factors.

Read on to know the ten tips to tackle sibling rivalry:

  1. Make Friends before Birth: encourage your first born to connect even before the birth of the new baby by including him or her in the changes you see and feel. Planning for the new baby with your first born will also help in such cases.
  2. Staying positive is a big factor that will help the children in feeling confident despite their different qualities and strengths.
  3. Comparison is a big no no. Stay away from these kind of comparisons so that the children do not feel like they have to fight with each other for your praise.
  4. Time Sharing: Ensure that you divide your time well and indulge each child in his or her area of interest so that they feel like you are always there for each of them.
  5. Harmonious Start to the day: this will ensure that the children have a special bond at the end of the day. Make sure that they help each other and divide chores accordingly. The older siblings should be given the care giving tasks while the younger ones should be taught to obey them and play along.
  6. Humour them: It is a known fact that humour is the best medicine that breaks even the most tension filled atmosphere.
  7. Family Meetings: Hold family meetings to discuss important things and even intense fights so that everyone's needs and issues are addressed.
  8. Empathy: Teaching your child to empathize with others will help him or her steer clear of needless rivalry at home too.
  9. Ignore the Small: Let them figure out the smaller fights, yet always be there to address the bigger issues so that they know you are there for them.
  10. Equal Treatment: Treating them equally does not mean doing the same thing for each of them. It means giving them equal time and attention with personalized treatment to suit varied temperaments. This will also give them a lot of individual confidence which eventually kills any feelings of rivalry.

Hi sir my son is just 10 month and his teeth is coming and he is doing loose motion and vomiting suggest what to give him for relief.

Pediatrician, Pune
While teething, there is some irritation in the gums, children tend to put everything the catch hold off in the mouth, to reduce the irritation, if the objects, hands are not clean, there may be some infection leading to vomiting, diarrhoea, and also as children learn crawling in this age, their hands are there feet, and they put those hands in the mouth - leading to problems, this is part and parcel of growing up, unless his vomiting diarrhoea are not associated with significant illness dehydration, you need not worry, ensure that you you keep a clean hygiene, and whatever objects that he puts in his mouth are clean.

I am married guy with a 4 months baby boy. My sex life was good for initial 2 years of my marriage (4-5 times a week) till we got the news of my wife's pregnancy. We avoided sex in first 3 months as per doctor's advice & then for following 3 months, we did occasionally (once a week). Then there was a complete pause of 6 months till the baby was of 3 months. On resuming sex, I am facing problems for which I need solution. I don't get erection strong enough to penetrate even after good foreplay & if we try harder for it then I end up ejaculating. We tried penetrating using oil as lubricant in semi-erect state but either erection is unsustainable or it ends up in premature ejaculation. Me & my wife love each other but this situation is affecting our relation. I can't fulfill her desires every time by foreplay. Also I started avoiding getting physical with her due to it. We try having sex hardly once a week but it leads to dissatisfaction. please help. Also I am ashamed to consult doctor face to face.

Erectile dysfunction is a serious problem in married life. U need to be patience for this. Treatment is needed. U need to avoid sex for 2 weeks atlst. For the first 7 days just hug her, kiss her don't touch each others private parts. Do it for regular. Then after 7 days try for sex. Before you prepared for sex have a deep breathing for 10 mins. Don't think too much about sex. Rather think about other things like a child. Mind and confidence is all you need to boost up. Exercise regularly or walks regularly. It will also be helpful. Contact me in private. Through Lybrate. There I can give you some more advise which will definitely work for your erection dysfunction. Also will prescribe some medicine. By proper homeopathic treatment you will be completely cure. Soo contact me through Lybrate.

Isolated speech delay is common on some children. You can wait for some more time. You have to rule out hearing defect. Show to an audiologist.

I'm breastfeeding for two years. How can I increase supply. Is there way to enlarge my breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Indore
Breast milk is not dependent on its size alone. Breast Enlargement is one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase the breast Size. Enlargement can be done with fat grafting or silicone breast implants. Breast enlargement. Silicone implants are the gold standard world over, very short operative procedure with very gratifying results. The creams and capsules have never actually worked, but since every one is not immediately ready for surgery so the companies use these gimmicks to market their products. If there is lack of substance then augmentation with a silicone implant is the best choice and a gold standard procedure. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. Almost 10 crore implants are in use and so it is extremely safe. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. NO Creams or Pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control. There is no natural way to increase Breast size, except that after child birth the size may become and remain bigger.

You means tonics. Well a child at seven months needs four times breast milk, 2-3 time s soup like food made at home of cereals, curd or milk. No necessity of tonics. You may add vitd sachets.

to get a clear diction children do take some time , you can continue to interact with your child , but don't make her aware of her difficulty in speech , she should be OK in few months time, nothing much needs to be done if she is otherwise well

If he is not loosing weight then perhaps nothing wrong. Just wait and watch. Give him home food, may give some probiotic. If loosing weight proper clinical examination is necessary
