When a family has two or more children’s different personalities, parents try to give them an equal amount of love and care. However, does this mean we should deal with them the same way?

The answer is No! Each child has distinguished personality traits that need to be treated differently. Also, the age difference among siblings asks for a different treatment. For instance, you cannot ask two siblings to carry out a single task just because you think it is fair. Your little child may feel frustrated if he/she is unable to do the task whereas a perfect task for your little child may be boring for the older one. Additionally, punishment and rewards should not be similar between them either.

 

When you have two or more children, How To deal with them?



  1. In the beginning, parents should observe their child’s attitude so they can tell who is the most sensitive, the rowdiest, the organized, or the most stubborn one of them.

  2. If you go for a picnic, it is vital to bring children together and consider their opinions. However, for example, try not to force one of the children to play with the ball just because his/her other brother wants to do that. Don’t hesitate to reward your children when they behave well, yet don`t pick a similar gift for everyone because each child has different tastes that you need to highly consider.

  3. In contrast, when noticing a stark difference between children`s personalities, parents should care about each child separately for a while. Therefore, the child feels that his/her parents respect their desires which they work to understand and try to get them fulfilled.

  4. Moreover, explain for older brothers that the needs of their younger brothers differ and you may need to spend a longer time with the little ones because they cannot take care of themselves.

  5. Perhaps the biggest challenge that faces parents is to avoid comparing between them, especially in front of the children themselves. A naughty child at school may be better at school, while the socially-integrated child may suffer problems of other kinds.

  6. Finally, pinpoint your child’s strengths and give them proper appraisal so your children learn how to respect each other and take pride in their achievements.
