Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings

Perigee Books

Maybe you can still hear the voice of your parents in your head: "if you kids don't stop fighting..." 

Sibling rivalry is common and frequently intense, but it doesn't have to be.  So says psychologist Dr. Laura Markham, the author of Peaceful parent, Happy Sibling

The book explains the issues that can arise between siblings, and suggests ways to reframe the situations to provide peace in the family. 

Dr. Markham joins us to talk about her approach.
