Convincing siblings to extend help
In the beginning, this set up might not work since older children are busier ay school and even with their social lives. In fact, it might be hard to convince the older one to render help, enough and elaborate explanation might convince him or her to do so. But this doesn’t mean that you cannot ask older siblings to so some tutoring.
For parents to convince older siblings to tutor the younger ones at home, make the tutoring session appear as the best "bonding moment" for both of them. At times, siblings may tend to fight with each other when they are at home. Despite that, they still love each other no matter what.
For the older sibling to be convinced in providing homework help to the younger one, convince him or her that tutoring the younger child will serve as a way to lessen their fighting incidents. You can also tell him or her that the child will be endeared to him or her if the older one is willing to help in minor tasks such as helping the latter in his or her schoolwork.
They can also explain to the older child that you are helping not just the younger child but you as well. Older siblings are expected to understand that you are not giving him or her the responsibility of tutoring the younger child because you want to but because you cannot do it due to the fact that you are working for the entire family.
