Siblings Stick Together!

When given the option – they chose inclusion! Do Siblings Stick Together?

We had to have a conversation with our daughters today. 

Sibling Relationship 

Their brother was no longer able to do an activity with them in a way that worked for him. Therefore, they would not be able to do it together any longer. Of course, they had many questions and more feelings. They were just trying to understand.

We gave them their options and let them know whichever decision they decided, it was going to 100% be the right decision. They could continue the activity, the two of them, and we would find something else for their brother to do, OR they could choose a new activity that the three of them could do together.

How do you describe a bond between siblings?

Without hesitation, the decision was to change and do something together. They love experiencing life together and more importantly, they didn’t feel good about not having him with them.

Inclusion, it doesn’t have to be complicated. 

Sibling Bonding

Yes, Siblings Stick Together!
