Another thread peaked my curiosity on this topic.
Are you close to your siblings? For those of you who are really close to your siblings - what special things did your parents teach you for you to be so close to your siblings?
As a mother of 3 children, I want my children to love and respect each other ALWAYS. I often wonder and worry about how I am doing as a parent in teaching them these values.
My husband’s family is TOTALLY dysfunctional, and I don’t want my children growing up thinking that the way his parents and brother act is an acceptable way of how family is supposed to treat each other. :tsktsk:
