Today my blog friend Mia and I kicking off an end-of-year celebration by sharing our top five posts of 2014! We start today by sharing our fifth most popular post of the year – which on my blog is Raising Kids Who Get Along: Bringing Home a Younger Sibling, with 20,464 views in 2014! I wrote this post as a follow-up to my also very popular Raising Kids Who Get Along post (which received 16,357 views in 2014), and I am thrilled to say that all four of my kids continue to be very good friends!
Most of the tips in both of these posts I learned from my parents, who successfully raised ten children who get along:
As much work as it had to have been for my parents to raise ten children – while traveling the world, no less – I can’t even begin to explain how amazing it is to have nine adult siblings who are your friends. My brothers and sisters are incredible resources about all sorts of topics, from music to psychology to statistics to parenting. My siblings push me to be a better wife, mother, sister, and friend, and they often provide the support I need to make it happen. I am convinced that there is no greater gift parents can give their children than the friendship of their brothers and sisters.
