“A man that hath friends, must shew himself friendly.” Proverbs 18:24a (KJV) When I was a little girl, my Granny would tell me that verse.

When Siblings Squabble and How to Help Them Work Through It + a FREE Download

I have 6 kids, 10 years and younger. There are constant sibling squabbles in our household. Some days are worse than others. I am often asked how I control the fighting, both by friends and even by readers. We are by no means perfect but we have found ways to calm the chaos. 1. Give them Space.
