Adorable separately, yet a nightmare when together - having more than one child can be difficult when the inevitable sibling rivalries come to bear. A child's feelings towards the other sibling can be diverse, extreme and conflicting - sometimes all at once.

This down-to-earth, practical book takes the best and latest research - along with practical experience - to help us manage these difficult relationships. Talking parents through the reality, it reveals how best to reduce conflict and frustration and help children attain more positive, fulfilling relationships. It deals with issues from the arrival of a new child, to sharing, conflicts and communication. A warm, supportive guide, this book cuts through negativity to provide the best advice available for these most crucial formative relationships.

Industry Reviews

This excellent book... is packed full of wisdom about this largely under-examined relationship. It informs parents who want to know how best to handle the differing needs of individual children, how to cope with competitiveness and rivalry, and the authors always prioritise the importance of emotional relationships. They don't just look at the needs of the children, but the needs of the parents as well. - NCT

The mixture of personal experience, professional expertise and large helpings of humour make this a much needed and very accessible book for families - Vivienne Gross, Institute of Family Therapy


Finally, a sensible, balanced and really useful handbook that tells you how to deal with children as they are, rather than as people would like them to be - Kate Figes

I couldn't recommend it more highly - Mary McLeod, Childline
