Ron: Fight, fight! When new siblings don’t get along.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Step and adopted siblings are no more prone to sibling rivalry than biological siblings are, but conflict does happen. You know, Jessica’s daughter gets along great with her stepsister who’s about the same age, but the older stepsister wants nothing to do with her. And everyone in the home feels the tension.

Well, you respond to sibling conflict by helping them resolve the issue, but when one sibling is holding out—or mistreating the other coach them toward love. Call them up to decency and generosity and encourage leadership in older siblings. Help them see the opportunity, not the inconvenience, of being a positive influence. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
