I like being a sibling

Siblings often tell us about the things that are good about growing up with a disabled brother or sister. You may have met new friends, had fun family experiences together or have learnt how to do things at an earlier age.

Some ways to remind yourself of the good things about being a sibling

1

Make a list of all the things you have learnt to do as a sibling that other people your age don’t know about.

2

Put some photos on your bedroom wall of the friends you have made through meeting other siblings.

3

Write down the things that your family have done together that you have enjoyed.

I go to a sibling group at school. I’ve made loads of friends as we all go through the same things and we understand each other.
