The Sermon on the Mount helps a family

The bedroom floor was covered with an entire city of matchbox cars, trucks, and people. Jimmy was playing quietly when Susie came in and wanted to join. "Cars aren't for girls," snapped Jimmy. "Go play with your dolls." As Susie left, she grabbed his favorite truck and ran down the hall. The chase was on—the children running through the house, yelling and screaming. Mother saw Jimmy corner Susie and demand his truck back; Susie refused. Jimmy grabbed, Susie hit, and the fight began. Sound familiar?

Too often people are led to believe that sibling squabbles are normal and to be expected, that there is nothing they can do about this nor should they try. Some psychologists even say a little fighting in the home releases tension.
