The Solution to Sibling Rivalry

Don't you want to know?

For Family Home Evening, I read an article from the Friend magazine (our go to source for FHE lessons). It is a short little article where the magazine asks a question and readers can write in and give their ideas.

And it was the perfect question for our children. "My brother and I argue a lot. I want to be nicer, but it's hard. What are some things I can do to stop fighting."

So I read through the answers and then we talked about which one they liked best or if they had a different ideas. Quinn doesn't like to be left out. And most of the time, she has been listening and has a pretty good answer.

Tonight her answer to sibling rivalry was brilliant.

Quinn (said with lots of hand motions): "I know. I know. Just calm down. And then eat marshmallows." For real she said that. We all died.

And I totally agree. And if you haven't had homemade marshmallows - you should.

Or this one. I have it on good authority that nothing beats it.
