Childhood Discipline: Can a Kid Scold a Sibling?

For most of us parents, disciplining your child is a headache. Yet when one mom asked me my view on siblings parenting siblings, I had to say that, in my view, you don’t want one sibling parenting another. Watch this video for my take on handling brothers and sisters fighting and childhood discipline generally.

Disciplining Your Child
Thanks to mom Kathy for submitting a question to the CloudMom community!! Kathy has an older child and a younger baby and is finding that the older child wants to discipline the older one. This has definitely come up in my house and I do think that there is an element of sibling rivalry, here, which is a huge issue for me and alot of other moms.
Watch this video for why I think, though, that it should be the parents handling the discipline and that kids should not be disciplining other kids. Among other things, I think this could make sibling rivalry issues worse.
If anyone else has tips on how to handle this, please include them in the comments. I could use all the help I can get!
