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.

Quick read with lots of advice that can be implemented immediately. Highly recommend for parents of younger ones to help them navigate their sibling relationships (and our own).

This book, along with How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will Talk by the same authors, was one of my favorite parenting books. I see it is still highly rated today.
