Siblings Should Be Close Friends

There is nothing cooler than seeing your children get along when you are a parent. Every parent dreams of raising their children to all be best friends. It makes growing up easier when they are all close. They look out for each other, teach each other things, and play games with each other. As they grow older maybe they will do even more things together like make a band or room together at college. MaryAnne at Mama Smiles recently posted about Siblings Helping Siblings.

The post includes a wonderful picture of MaryAnne’s six year old helping her four month old read a book. This is a perfect example of how raising your children to be friends makes growing up easier. The six year old is occupied by reading and feels important because of her reading skills, and the six month old is thrilled to be held and read to. That is some really awesome parenting on display!
