Parenting 101 Getting Your Kids to Get Along

It’s part of many children’s experience growing up to share a room with their siblings – if you have more than one child. This can be lots of fun in its own way, but sometimes a little bit of drama and sibling rivalry comes with the territory.

You can, however, have your kids love to share their room and other spaces at home with their brothers and sisters. All it takes is a little creativity to make the best of every interaction. Here are 5 tips for having your children enjoy sharing space at home, whether you live in a condo or a house and lot for sale.


Are you creating a home of sharing and caring? Here are some tips on how you can improve sibling relationships and have your kids get along

1. Give your kids their private space.

This might sound counter-intuitive, but allowing your child their own place in your house and lot for sale makes sharing other parts of the house so much more enjoyable. Put a canopy over each of your kids’ bed spaces to create a small haven that they can decorate and retreat to when they need time for themselves. Even in a shared room, there are lots of ways your child can decorate to express their character in their own unique ways.


2. Make a shared closet just for kids.

One of the challenges of having multiple kids in one bedroom is managing space. Avoid the clutter of clothes and toys strewn all over the floor by keeping all of the kids’ things in one place, possibly even outside the bedroom of your house and lot for sale. When it’s time to get dressed for school or turn in for the night, allow them to bring just the essentials into their rooms. Toys, clothes, games, and everything else in the meantime should stay in the kids’ closet.

3. Give everyone the same bedtime.

This works especially well for younger children. When all of your kids go to bed at the same time, they are also more likely to get a full night’s rest without the distraction of other siblings who might still be awake. Once you’ve set the bedtime, your kids will begin to think of the bedroom as a place for quiet and sleep. This keeps both you and your kids energetic during the day, having had a good night’s rest.


4. Prepare for disturbances.

If you have an older child at home sharing a room with a toddler, it would help to set boundaries. Explain to your older child that sometimes their baby brother or sister will wake up in the middle of the night, and it will be mom or dad’s responsibility to take care of them.

Younger boys and girls often share the same room. This may become dramatic as opposite-sex children get older, but what’s important is that you are able to set boundaries. Create schedules for bathroom use and rules for when each child may have the bedroom to themselves. This teaches your growing kids that it’s not only possible to share, but with the right ground rules, it can be very enjoyable too!

5. Make a little noise.

White noise, that is. An air purifier or air conditioner will create a gentle hum in the bedroom of your house and lot for sale which makes the environment more relaxing. This little parenting hack muffles all of the little noises your kids might make while they’re asleep, and makes living in a shared space more comfortable around nap times.

Getting your kids to get along is also crucial to their development as they will spend time with other younger or older kids. A child basically copies what they see from their parents. And they will use their home experiences outside with other kids. Training them to be mindful of their younger sibling could also lead to them being mindful of other younger kids.

Kids Fighting


Kids fight and part of every child’s life is some sibling conflict. This is normal and it gives them a learning experience. A recommended thing to do when kids fight is to set ground rules, treat both the older siblings and younger siblings fairly, and talk to them to identify what started their fighting. Don’t always shout. Be gentle and provide them with positive interactions. Encourage siblings to respect each other and reward teamwork.
