Already best-selling authors with How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish turned their minds to the battle of the siblings. Parents themselves, they were determined to figure out how to help their children get along. The result was Siblings Without Rivalry. This wise, groundbreaking book gives parents the practical tools they need to cope with conflict, encourage cooperation, reduce competition, and make it possible for children to experience the joys of their special relationship. With humor and understanding--much gained from raising their own children--Faber and Mazlish explain how and when to intervene in fights, provide suggestions on how to help children channel their hostility into creative outlets, and demonstrate how to treat children unequally and still be fair. Updated to incorporate fresh thoughts after years of conducting workshops for parents and professionals, this edition also includes a new afterword.

display_description Authors Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish refused to accept the idea that constant teasing, tattling, and battling is the price that must be paid for having more than one child. Drawing on their own experience and the hundreds of workshops they conducted throughout the country, they have developed simple yet effective ways to reduce conflict and generate goodwill between siblings. Each skill is illustrated by the thoughts and stories of real parents. Dialogue and cartoons show how to help children express their feelings toward each other without doing damage; how to treat children unequally and still be fair; how to promote cooperation rather than competition; how to be helpful to both the "bully" and the "victim"; and how to reduce rage and motivate battling siblings to work out their own solutions.
