Siblings – Competitor or Buddy?

This book offers practical advice about how to prevent sibling conflicts and rivalry. You can read about the many different reasons why children change their behavior and become more demanding when their brother or sister arrives. What kind of changes can you expect, how do you best avoid the range of negative reactions and how to tackle the different ways in which children respond? Among other things, you get ideas about how to pay attention to each individual child and avoid having favourites.
The book also stresses how you can go about creating a good sibling relationship that will become life-long. The author tells us about challenges related to different age groups and Family compositions. The book contains a wealth of practical advice and ideas for parents with young children and all the examples of problems are presented with solutions.
