Sibling relationships are a wonderful part of family life, but it’s normal for those relationships to face challenges at times. With the added stresses of COVID-19, for example, families may find themselves having to adjust to new dynamics with siblings confined at home together or relying on each other more than usual.

The candid chat was facilitated by Brad Thompson, one of our peer support specialists.
