Social Skills for Siblings: Asking to Play

Siblings have unique and complex relationships. We can help them navigate these relationships by teaching them helpful social skills. This “Asking to Play” story provides specific procedures and visual reminders for the processes of getting someone’s attention and asking to play together. 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.
