Let Them Design Their Own Lives
When kids are close in age, they often end up in the same activities and even have a lot of the same friends. While that is not necessarily a bad thing, pay attention to how your kids react to these situations. If you sense they feel the need to branch out, give them the space to make their own friends and join a club or team that their sibling isn’t a part of. Having a bit more of their own identity may help them to appreciate what they do share with their sibling even more.
