Caring for siblings of children with disabilities can be a chore. As a parent, it is easy to get so caught up in caring for your disabled child that the other brothers and sisters get left out, or at the least a lot less time than they are used to, or that they need.
This can be a death trap for the peace in your household, and it can destroy your whole family if you don’t take care of it quickly.
I know for a fact how that can feel.
In today’s episode, we share how our son, Hunter, has had to adjust, and some of the things we have had to do to rebuild those relationships with him.
This is the second episode in our series about family relationships. Last week, we went into how to work on your marriage, and next week we will wrap it up with a discussion on how to work on the relationships with your extended family.
In the episode about siblings of disabled children, we talk about:
- how to handle sibling jealousy, and what kind of impact it can have on your family
- One of the biggest challenges we have faced, and how to avoid it
- How to model better behavior for your other children
- One of the biggest mistakes we made with Hunter, and what you can do instead
- and a simple way to reconnect and rebuild the trust once it has been broken
We had a really great discussion on how to raise the siblings of children with disabilities, and some of the common pitfalls that you need to avoid.
