Healthy and Effective Ways to Facilitate Sibling Connection


Sibling bonding is very important; however, it doesn’t happen automatically with biological siblings, foster or adoptive children. Approximately two-thirds of children in foster care in the United States have a sibling also in care.  This could potentially cause a child to feel alone or abandoned in their new home. Feeling abandoned and alone may create a high level of hesitancy in a child making it difficult for them to create a connection with other children in a home. With that being said, it’s important for parents to understand that the process of bonding is the same, whether it is bonding between biological siblings, foster siblings, foster parents and or other family members. Being related by blood doesn’t mean a bond will automatically happen. Sibling connections only takes place with time and with parents being intentional about creating a safe, none judgmental and loving environment. This webinar will give parents effective tips on how to create a home that facilitates and promote sibling connection. The webinar will also give parents the pitfalls of not trusting the process and taking the microwave approach instead of the crock-pot approach.
