teacher finds sibling rivalry in class

I am a secondary school teacher and i have twins in my class. The brother and sister are in unhealthy competition with each other, even cheating to get better marks than the other. I hate to think how they would be at home. I brought the matter up to the parents, but they are helpless. They say the kids are constantly fighting at home.

  • Hi. Unhealthy competition among siblings is very often because the adults in the kids' life, especially parents, compare one to the other. Such comparison can give rise to competition. Also, find out from the parents if they are spending enough time with each of the kids, appreciating them for what they are, not what they achieve in school.
