Good Inside with Dr. Becky

How do I handle sibling competition?

Episode Summary

<p>It's hard for kids to share their parents. Siblings can feel like they're competing for the ultimate resource: your love and attention. While we can't get rid of those competitive feelings, we can help our kids learn to recognize and regulate them (and this of course is what leads to improved behavior!). In this week's episode, Dr. Becky offers several strategies to parents navigating sibling rivalry—from validating our kid's tricky feelings about siblinghood to encouraging cooperation to introducing mantras through play.<p/> <p/> <p/> Follow Dr. Becky on Instagram: <p/> Subscribe for weekly strategies and scripts: <p/> Learn more with Dr. Becky’s workshops: <p/> <p/> Today’s episode is brought to you by the following sponsors:<p/> <p/> FEED is an impact driven lifestyle brand on a mission to end childhood hunger.
