This book has taught me so much about family dynamics and the roles we put on each other. It even had me re-inspecting my role in my family growing up. It is an easy read, and I have picked it up every 6-9 months and re-read portions of it and learn something new each time. I think it takes a while to learn the skills they recommend to help you learn to manage your children to help them learn to manage their relationships. It is a phenomenal parenting tool. I can't recommend it enough!
This book challenges the idea that constant, unpleasant conflict is natural and unavoidable, and in action-oriented, easy to understand anecdotes and stories shows the many ways you can teach your children how to get alone.
This is a very readable book on parenting and sibling relationships. Many times, I read through parenting books very slowly trying to capture the thoughts, but this one was so well written and organized, that I read through it quickly. I especially like the Quick Reminders that give a brief summary of the topics in each chapter and the cartoons that illustrate the wrong way and the right way to handle sibling stresses. This will be a valuable and handy reference.Topics covered include:- Acknowledging feelings about each other- Resisting comparison of siblings- Treat children uniquely- Don't lock a child into a role- No more problem children- Handling fighting
Indispensible for anyone with more than one child.
