As any parent of more than one child knows, it’s challenging for even the most engaged parent to maintain harmony and a strong connection when competition, irritation and tempers run high.

PEACEFUL PARENT, HAPPY SIBLINGS gives you simple, yet powerful, ways to cut through the squabbling and foster a loving, supportive bond between siblings. You'll find hands-on, research-based advice on:

  • Fostering a loving family culture that encourages laughter and minimizes fighting.
  • Teaching your children healthy emotional self-management and conflict resolution skills—so that they can work things out with each other, get their own needs met and respect the needs of others.
  • Creating deep connections with each one of your children, so that each truly believes that you couldn’t possibly love anyone else more.
  • Helping your kids forge a close lifelong sibling bond—as well as the relationship skills they will need for a life of healthy friendships, work relationships, and eventually their own family bonds.
