Sibling Support

Sibling relationships allow children to learn to learn to express a range of emotions, including love, loyalty, anger and rivalry. Sometimes, they may feel they don’t get enough time from their parents and may appreciate extra time.

Siblings also provide support through:

  • Companionship and support
  • Providing support
  • Learning social skills
  • Teaching play and interactions
  • Building relationships
  • Influencing development
