The Mommy Referee Quiz - Sibling Rivalry Examples & Solutions


Raising 2 kids is twice the fun! But are you ready to handle sibling rivalry even during the quarantine? Take this quiz and see if you’re up for the challenge.

So you and hubby are getting ready for baby number two - emotionally, mentally, and of course, financially. But when it comes to raising 2 kids, there’s one thing that parents rarely consider. And more often than not, it catches them by surprise: Sibling rivalry.

The fact is you need to be more than a loving mommy or a playful mommy or a chef mommy. You also need to be a referee mommy — the one who manages sibling rivalry with the right amount of fairness, compassion, and discipline.

And with the quarantine being a reality we all have to live with for now, it’s obvious how it has brought with it a lot of stress not only for parents, but also the children.
