Parents who notice sibling jealousy try their best to create a bond between siblings. But the truth is that bonds are naturally created, it is just that the insecurities need to be addressed, more love to be extended and all this with calmness and positivity.

Feelings need to be acknowledged: Encourage open communication and validate each child’s emotions to help them feel understood.

Equality: Ensure equal treatment and opportunities to prevent feelings of favoritism.
