With a title like this, it's no surprise that authors Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish had a monster bestseller on their hands when the book first appeared in 1988. From the subsequent deluge of readers' stories, questions, and issues, they have created nearly 50 pages of new material for this, the 10th anniversary edition. The central message remains the same, and sounds almost too simple: avoid comparisons. But parents know that's easier said than done. The value of Faber and Mazlish's discussions is precisely that they talk you through umpteen different situations and outcomes to help you teach your brawling offspring a new set of responses. The highly informative text is punctuated with helpful summary/reminder boxes and cartoons illustrating key points. It's a must-read for parents with (or planning on) multiple children. But parents of young children who get along fine (so far) should read it too--as the authors make very clear, rivalry is inevitable. The only question is how to manage the rivalry with intelligence and compassion, and on that subject they offer a wealth of good advice. --Richard Farr
"A very human book about one of the toughest problems parents have to handle." -- --Dr. Benjamin M. Spock
"Have I got a book for you! Run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore." -- --Ann Landers

This little guidebook with it's simple illustrations, many stories and pragmatic wisdom is just one of the books from the La Leche League circle that made so much sense and the ideas work!
It allowed me-so much-to disengage from the drama and put the experience where it needed to be....conflict and resolution building skills for my kids. It also really pointed out how damaging or inspiring we can help our children make their sibling relationships be through what comments slip out of our mouth-often from our own history.
All kids want to be heard and understood; not shut down when they show an emotion.
While you can't act with out consequences this book teaches acknowledgement.
