Ritu wants to cry and scream. Both of her children, Rishab and Soma fight like enemies. Ritu’s Weekend mostly passes through, defending and playing the role of a referee.
Fights of sibling (siblings) can be the cause of anxiety and stress as well as being part of family life. It is difficult for a parent to fight for two children, and it is always difficult to know which child is being harassed or it is only an excuse to pull their attention towards them.
Every parent wants to give good care to their children so that their love for each other remains intact.
The term ‘sibling’ is used for children who belong to the same family. The mutual dispute between children is common and since then, since the person started living as a family. Mythological texts are stories of siblings and their battles in Ramayana and Mahabharata.
Dr. Marcia Sirota, founder, and author of the Ruthless Compassion Institute, states in an article:
“When children are raised in a dispute, regression and insecure environment in the family, it has a profound impact on their relationships as they grow older.”
What is the Sibling Rivalry?
Even if two children were born in the same family, they are different from each other. These differences can be sexual, behavior and emotions can happen. They do not choose each other, but their parents are the same. During childhood, mutual bout or opposition is called the Sibling Rivalry and it needs to be handled wisely.
Young Age children need parental attention so that they can trust, feel secure and can be emotionally strong. Children often express their emotions by harassing them, fighting, arguing and screaming to grab the attention of their parents.
Due to the sibling rivalry?

The sibling rivalry is not able to respect each other’s personal space and scope. It is not possible to be together.
At a young age, it does not make much difference to the age gap of two or three years. Children of five years and eight years of age can happily play together. But when one of them comes to teenage girls and another is only up to ten, then there can be a difference between them.
Father’s soft attitude for daughters can make the children angry. While a daughter can not like her brother for other reasons. Every child has a different kind of expectations from parents and if this is not complete, then there may be problems.
The child in the family is small or big
The difference in the behavior of parents depends on whether the child is big or small in the family.
It must be understood that a large child in the family is also a child and he also needs to learn the art of coping.
On the other hand, young children are always considered to be small children. It is natural for a mother to be more sensitive to her youngest child. However, parents should not treat the youngest child as a child after a certain age
