Virtual Family Workshop: Sibling Conflict and Teasing

All siblings invited

Got Siblings? Got Sibling Conflict? Get Strategies!


Most families struggled with sibling conflict and teasing before we found ourselves in this situation of "shelter in place." In some cases, there is sibling bullying. Sibling teasing and bullying can cause more harm than the teasing kid or bully at school.


Kids/Teens and Parents will learn how to identify sticky situations and how their brain responds to sticky situations. They will learn how to "ACT" not "REACT". Tone of voice, words, and strategies for problem solving, conflict management and calming ourselves will be shared.
