When a sibling does something annoying, like borrowing your clothes without asking, your first instinct is to fly off the handle. But no matter how angry you feel, remain calm when you confront your sibling. Let them know you are upset, but listen to their side of the story. Talking it out usually produces solutions that satisfy both parties: your sister can borrow your clothes, but she has to ask you first.
Lay Out Ground Rules
Miscommunication is the root of many sibling problems. End this by telling each other your pet peeves and laying out some ground rules. For example, your brother agrees not to play music while you’re doing your homework, and you agree not to hang around while his friends are over.
Do Something Nice for Them
Show your sibling some love by doing something nice for them every once in a while. Even something little can brighten your sibling’s day. Complement your sister on acing her test, or cheer on your brother at his big game.
