Excuse me, but what is the normal age, developmentally speaking, for siblings to stop bickering?
The whole “he started it”/”she looked at me”/”he is stealing my oxygen” type of bickering that makes otherwise sane parents retreat to the bathtub and rock themselves back and forth gently.
I’m asking for a friend.
An acquaintance, really.
My kids are 13 and 10, so they’re by no means little, and yet.
Thank goodness for dinnertime. (Mmmm…dinnertime…)
Because if you’re like most normal people, you cherish those moments when your entire family has gathered around the dinner table, enjoying a delicious meal that you prepared. Nutrition, nourishment, what could be better?
OH, I KNOW!
The kids shut the heck up while they’re chewing and finally, FINALLY there are a few moments of blessed silence.
It’s enough to make you want to feed your kids every day.
