Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings (2015)

How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life.

Very helpful information about how to talk to your children and coach them to communicate with each other. This book takes the best parts of Siblings Without Rivalry and How to Talk So Your Kids Will Listen and Listen So Your Kids will Talk and translates them to young kids. It starts from the same framework as Markham’s Peaceful Parenting. Basically: get yourself in order first, figure out how to be aware of your own emotions and recognize when you are tired/hungry/stressed and try to head off issues before they begin.

The way you discipline your child becomes the model for how your child works out interpersonal problems. The crux of the book is about building empathy in your children and coaching them in working through their feelings and making good decisions because they understand how it impacts other people, not because they are trying to avoid negative consequences. 

“The philosophical approach seemed quite in line with the authors of the Whole-Brain Child, it just dealt more specifically with sibling conflict.”

The Book Guide® Editor

The author advocates for “time in,” preventive maintenance and other techniques and does not support time outs. While I’m not sure I agree with all of her advice, there are a lot of great ideas based on research. So far I’ve seen good results with trying things out with one kiddo. Unique ideas too like creating a sibling holiday, lots of ways to keep the big kid busy while mom is nursing and even how to handle the situation where multiple kids want to push the elevator button. Real world situations and a menu of ideas to try. 

This book is giving parenting advice on how to stop the fighting between siblings. It teaches instead of getting frustrated with the children, you point out to them that what they are doing is wrong and tell them what the right behavior should be. There are all lot of practical suggestions in this book that are very beneficial to having the day run smoother and to keep the parent from having the meltdowns.

“Finally, there is a treasure of a book to help guide parents as they welcome a new sibling into their household. Dr. Laura explains, step by step, how parents can promote a positive, loving, and respectful bond between siblings. Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings is a must-have for any family with multiple children.” (Debbie Zeichner, LCSW, parent coach and educator).

Tsabary truly is breaking down old parenting traditions and putting forth a powerful new premise on how to parent. The framework Dr. Tsabari details here has the potential to be game-changing. The central point of her framework is to drop your expectation for what your child will like or dislike and let them decide for themselves. This seems risky and all, but it makes sense if you read the book and hear her support for the method. Some of what makes it work are the "Awakened" part of the title.
