Parent's actions and decisions can greatly affect sibling's relationships. I have found that organizing their play area so that you don't have a lot of small pieces floating around limits the squabbles. I try to have a lot of cooperative toys that they can use together, and to have enough that they can share without a lot of problems. Yet on the other hand, it is a good idea to separate some personal items so a child can gain a sense of belonging. When siblings do argue, it is good to teach children to use their words instead of grabbing or yelling. Teaching them to work things out in a co-operative way.
