Often, parents are forced to resign themselves to the prevalent strife. The authors of this handbook refuse to accept that nothing can be done about sibling rivalry. Drawing on their years of experience in teaching communication skills to parents, the authors aim to devise simple but effective ways of reducing antagonism between siblings. Each suggestion is backed up with the experience of real parents and their children. Vivid dialogue and cartoons illuminate the many forms of this problem and show how to promote co-operation rather than competition. Typical problems are tackled, such as helping children to express their negative feelings about each other without inflicting damage, how to treat children unequally and still remain fair, how to be helpful to both the "bully" and the "victim", and how to reduce rage between battling siblings and encourage them to sort out their differences. Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish are the authors of the workshop kit "How to talk so kids will listen", currently in use by groups throughout the world.Read Less
