Social Skills for Siblings: Asking for a Turn

Siblings have unique and complex relationships. We can help them navigate these relationships by teaching them helpful social skills. This “Asking for a Turn” story provides specific procedures and visual reminders for the processes of getting someone’s attention and asking for a turn. It also provides positive choices for what to do when a sibling says, “No.”

The more children encounter helpful skills in a variety of different contexts, the more likely they are to adopt the desired skill. Better social skills equal fewer conflicts, greater cooperation and healthier sibling relationships.
