Should you be hyper-involved or uber hands-off? Is there a "straight and narrow" way to parenting siblings? Let's chat sibling parenting in the gospel.

Lab Notes

Sometimes we discuss parenting concepts at if we need to be on the "right" side of a line. Don't be *that* kind of parent, articles tell us. Instead, be *this* kind of parent.

But what about when we hear conflicting opinions? Should we be hyper-involved and always available? Or should we be hands-off and foster independence through tough love? And, to get right to the point, what does that look like when it comes to sibling conflict?

Is there a "straight and narrow" way to parent the siblings in your home? Let's talk about what sibling parenting and mediating sibling conflict look like in light of the gospel and in relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • I really enjoyed this episode.
    I liked the idea that wisdom is taking biblical principles and applying them over and over- building wisdom muscles. And I appreciated the question of “why get involved (or not)?” In order to help our children develop godly relationship skills. Thanks
