Lesson 2: Handling Sibling Fighting
Fighting among children within a family is so common that it is widely considered to be “normal” behavior. However, it is neither normal nor desirable and can be destructive to children’s self-esteem and the family’s emotional health.
Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs suggests that most fighting is “purposeful.” Children fight because of the purpose it serves–a purpose which, in the mind of the child, produces a result that makes the disagreement worthwhile.
