The #1 New York Times best-selling guide to reducing hostility and generating goodwill between siblings.
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.

    I literally recommend this book to everyone I know that has more than one child or who is thinking about having another-to those who even babysit siblings and to those who have siblings themselves! There are too many things we can say, do or not do to that affect our children's relationships with each other and ourselves positive and negative. This book helps reveal the long term effects with practical advice that can be used everyday. And this book is so easy to read with actual visual scenarios that help put into practice this mind blowing need to know information. I am a Christian and this book is relevant not just in my home but in every home. It actually has helped to heal relationship dysfunctions between my sisters and I as well. It is a parenting MUST read!
