Love your children equally

2017-09-14 06:01

Some parents are to blame for their kids hating their siblings.

I don’t mean to generalise but I’ve observed many black families. A typical example that I often come across is when parents pass derogatory comments about one child, calling him a moron or domkop in front of his siblings.

By doing this, the parent plants a seed of hatred and division among their children. Tomorrow those children will mock and tease one another.

This could negatively affect a child’s confidence. The most important thing is to love all your children equally and unconditionally, despite their weaknesses.

The golden rule is never to gossip or talk maliciously about one child to another. When there’s conflict among your kids, quickly intervene and don’t take sides. Parents should be the glue that binds the family.
