Sibling relationships are often fraught with rivalry, jealousy, bitterness, and violence, and the older kids get, the worse the problems seem to get. Sibling strife can be agony for the parents, and few are prepared for the intensity of the battles and emotions that their kids have with each other. The title, Siblings Without Rivalry promises a lot, and Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish (coauthors of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk) deliver the goods: a positive approach and specific techniques to help bring peace and cooperation into your home. Siblings Without Rivalry is organized by sections: the importance of expressing hostile feelings, the perils of comparisons, teaching kids to work out conflicts on their own, and what to do when they fight. The "Reminder" pages, humorous examples that ring true, and great cartoons by Kimberly Ann Coe all make this book an easily accessible resource. Faber and Mazlish will help you understand sibling rivalry from the inside out, and you'll gain insight on your relationships with your own siblings, as well.
