I realized today that I am really glad that I have 3 boys who are strong and stand up for themselves. And while I do feel like there is more I want to teach them about the importance of treating their siblings well, I am grateful that I don't have either a totally dominant bully or completely passive pushover in the family. I have seen a family with such dynamics and it is sad to witness either child in such a distinct role. So while I have great disdain for the bickering and tones I am grateful and proud that I am raising my sons to be strong, fair people who will not be walked over, even by a brother and who will not totally dominate even a brother.
