Big Sistering for Dummies
This list is to help you and your younger
siblings get along and be friends
#1 Remember you are worshiped by a younger person.#2 The smaller (younger) person wants to be the same as you because they like you so much.#3 Remember even though they can be frustrating, they still love you.#4 If you do not want them to be in your space or room do not have a keep out sign. That makes them more curious. Let them come in and look, but you can have privacy and thing off limits.#5 Try to be kind to them, remember you were their age once. If they ask you to play and you do not want to you can simply say, "no, but I would like to some other time!"#6 Try to love them. Look at them and try to recognize that they are human beings with feelings.#7 You need time for yourself, do something relaxing, by yourself.#8 Find something you and your sibling have in common and like to do together because you are going to be with them a long time.#9 If you are frustrated walk out of the room/get away or ask for help. Adults are really important at times like these. You are not responsible for your younger sibling, your parents are and it is okay to ask them for help!#10 The reason it's worth it to work on your relationship with your sibling is because when you are sick or down they are always there for you and you'll always have a friend to hang out with. The rewards are worth all the work!
And thankfully their Sister Love keeps growing and
growing! The Little Sister's great idea for
a photo hiding their faces...Hugging!
