Siblings Who Like Each Other

Happy day 29 of Down syndrome awareness month!

I have almost made it through the whole month- sharing a post each day on some topic of Down syndrome. Today, I'll show a candid video I took of my kids. 

My kids (ages 11 and 8) really like each other. Truly... They may have some small squabbles, but they get along really well. My son (who is actually younger) jumps in and helps Jaycee without being asked sometimes. He is aware she may need help, and he just does it. He's a great brother! 

A few weeks ago, the kids were bouncing on a jump pillow at a campground when I took this video. My son noticed Jaycee's balance was a bit off since there were other children jumping on this inflatable at the same time, and he did this: 

People wonder all the time what the dynamics are in a family like mine. They wonder if their children will form good relationships. I hope this video is the proof some people are looking for!

  1. Seems like Jaycee's brother is in the social majority - the eighty-four percent of people who jump in to help others and have a big influence on the social climate.

    And of course sibling relationships are unique.
