Ever wonder if you're children will get a long and treat each other as friends?

Here's a recent exchange that made me smile and tickled my fancy:

Don't give up. Despite all the fighting, bickering, rivalry that occurs with siblings as a parent, keep parenting.
Follow the scriptures and, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6.

Continually teach the word of God - “We will not hide them [instructions and history] from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” Psalm 78:4

Model it by living it out; p
ray often; pray over them and pray for them.

As you can tell they all have different personality traits and as a parent that's sometimes the toughest part - bringing out the best in each child while not making anyone feel less than.

Don't give up and trust God.

Do your older children get along with each other?
