A STEP BY STEP Strategy When Siblings Fight

1. Don’t solve it for them, solve it with them

Working together with children is the best way to help them. Most children learn by doing and with adults help we can build more emotional connections. Mention at the beginning that you are excited to listen to both, to help solve the quarrel so both profit and that you can’t wait to have some well-deserved ice cream afterward.

This will make them feel heard, part of a group and with good motivation to resolve and not sulk.

2. Give them a minute

A minute of silence helps children mentally prepare for moving on. Adults know how to read clocks and can mentally prepare that way, children don’t yet. Verbally telling them how many minutes or showing them a countdown is a way to help them process.

If you believe your children are not patient enough to last a whole minute, ask for 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise if necessary multiple times.

3. Are you Okay?

“Are you okay?” allows the hurt child to process how they are feeling and allows the other child to realize their actions have consequences. Then flip it around.

Ask the other child the same question but ask them to show enough maturity to not focus on the blame that was tossed. More times than not the child first to be blamed is the one who was the first one to get hurt.

Acknowledge both sides and thank them, but do not take sides.

4. Talk them through frustrations and hurt feelings 

Labeling the emotions helps the child process their emotions, it builds connections is their brain that will tell them in the future: “You’re frustrated. But we can move to pass it I say it rather act on it!”
This is crucial to make them understand. The argument happened because one or both did not express the emotions they had but rather just got upset. The more they know their feelings the easier is going to get.

*Try offering this solution of words to use: “I am hurt but I know you love me, right?” then followed by asking for an explanation of the action done that made the child hurt.

Let’s talk, not assume.

5. Don’t rush it

The amount of tears a child sheds is based on how we react. More often than not, they don’t need (or want) our help and we can just let the situation play out.

But other times they might need more time. Do not rush them because you are in a rush. If you are, tell them you are, do not make them feel they are in fault because their emotions are fragile and important to nourish and respect just like yours are to you.

*Smart tip: invite them to kitchen to sit and eat ice cream in silence while you do your errand in case you indeed are rushed at the moment of argument. Promise them to talkk and try and solve issue with them as soon as you finish.
And mean it.

How to care for your child's clothes

Cotton rompers are soft, made with breathable fabric that's ideal for your baby's delicate skin. It’s also incredibly easy to care for and stays soft wash after wash—two qualities every parent loves in a fabric.

Here are a few tips to keep your Grabsi items looking fresh and new:

1. Wash before first use

 

 Set machine to a normal cycle. Select cold for colors and warm/hot for whites. Before placing items of like colors in the machine, zip all zippers and snap all snaps to prevent the fastenings from snagging. Also, for the same reason, avoid washing your items with anything that has Velcro on it. Once the cycle is finished, remove items promptly from the washing machine. Tumble dry on low.

2. Do not iron or dry clean


3. Enjoy the time with your child

 

How to get rid of the stains

It has happened before that a baby has left a stain of his or her new clothes. That’s just what they do. We love them, but they are clumsy indeed. So, here are some tips on how to get rid of those nasty stains on your items:

Pre-treating stubborn stains

To spot clean a stain, mix chlorine-free bleach with water to create a pasty substance and gently rub into the stain with a toothbrush or stain brush. To soak a stain, fill a sink or basin with hot water and chlorine-free bleach. Soak items for at least one hour. Rinse dirty water and repeat if necessary.

Hand-washing

Fill a basin with warm water and add .5 fl. oz. of your laundry detergent. Mix the water and detergent, using your hands to gently agitate your item. Soak for one hour. Do not worry if color appears in your water, this is normal. Run cool water through item until rinse water is no longer soapy. Squeeze or push out the water. Hang to dry, lay flat, or tumble dry on low. Do not dry any items that still have stains.
