BROTHERS AND SISTERS PLAY THEIR PART TO PROTECT AND CARE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN THEIR COMMUNITY BY BEING SUPPORTIVE, CARING AND LOOKING OUT FOR EACH OTHER.
Be a positive role model for your siblings to learn from. Be aware of your behaviour and take responsibility for it – what you say, how you say it and the way you act. Children and young people learn from the people they spend time with, so make your influence positive!
Be a good listener, support and encourage your brother/sister.
Understand that families have good times and hard times.
Enjoy spending time with your brother / sister and give yourself time apart from your family too.
If you are worried that your brother/ sister is unhappy, scared or unsafe encourage them to speak to an adult that they trust. This person could be a parent, teacher, counsellor. You can offer to go with them for extra support.
If you are old enough, offer to spend time with your brother/sister. Take them to the park, play outside with them, or do some other activities to make your relationship even stronger.
I am a brother, a father, an uncle and a farmer. I feel that my role is to educate the young people around me, this will help them grow. Children past a certain age don’t need everything done for them, they need to know how to do it for themselves so one day they can teach others.
