Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings
If you have younger children that are always fighting..this is a book for you. Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings was written for those parents with younger children that are struggling to get along with each other and especially for those families with a new little one on the way.
Dr. Markham presents simple yet powerful ways to cut through the squabbling and foster a loving, supportive bond between siblings, while giving each child the vital connection that he or she needs.
Inside this book you will find awesome advice on how to:
Create deep connections with each one of your children, so that each truly believes that you couldn’t possibly love anyone else more.
Foster a loving family culture that encourages laughter and minimizes fighting.
Teach 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.
Help 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.
The advice is given in a straight forward, no nonsense way that is easy to understand and to apply…immediately!
Being the mom of seven children, I can tell you that at any given time one or more of the children are struggling with something; either with each other or within themselves.
About the Author:
Dr. Markham earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University in New York. Her clinical practice is entirely devoted to coaching parents, with clients from New York to Australia (via Skype). She monitors the pulse of parents’ needs through her very active social network, including her own web site, AhaParenting.com. She speaks frequently with reporters for press as diverse as CNN and Parents Magazine and makes regular TV appearances. Dr. Markham lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with her family—and considers her kids – a daughter graduating from high school and a son graduating from an Ivy League university—to be proof that her parenting approach produces responsible, self-disciplined, considerate and happy kids who achieve in the world and stay deeply connected to their parents.
I would recommend this book for parents on younger children. This book doesn’t address sibling fighting over the age of about 5 or 6 years.
Order a copy of Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings at your local bookstores or on Amazon. It is available in Kindle, Paperback, Audible download and CD. No reason to not be able to listen and learn from Dr. Markham.
