Forcing New Siblings Can BackfireWritten by Laura Hickey - http://www.laurahickey.com
Starting a new family for many is one of most life changing experiences. But not everyone is going to be a happy camper. For many children it could be an unpleasant experience. Sharing their lives with a half sibling or step sibling may make them cringe. So how do you bridge gap? Sometimes you canít and that isnít your fault. Constantly trying to push children together may only result in one sibling hating other one. Praising one child to show how great they can be may only make other children hate them. Often times itís best to allow a child to make up their own mind on how they feel about their new siblings.
For siblings that donít live together, itís okay if they donít like each other. You canít expect a child who has lived mostly as an only child to start being brotherly or sisterly. No matter how great youíd think siblings should get along, child should have some say. If their step or half siblings are visiting, allow them to do their own activities. Donít force them to visit; itíll only cause anger and tension. It can be frustrating, but if a child doesnít like their new sibling, thatís how they feel. Pushing may only result in hate and that hate for siblings may never go away.

This is "manila envelope" technique. Obtain a manila envelope, notepad and pen and carry it with you throughout day. Each time you see something that interests you, find a way to save it in envelope. Rip things out of publications, print things off web, make notes on your pad, whatever, but preserve thought in some way and put it in manila envelope. Don't edit or censor your thoughts, if it interests you, put it in folder. Nothing is too silly or out of bounds in any way. At end of day, save manila envelope and start a new one for next day.
