Cynthia received a copy of this book in exchange for this review. All opinions expressed here are honest and her own.
I recently received the opportunity of reviewing”Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings, How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life” written by Dr. Laura Markham.
When I first picked up this book, the title of this truly sounded like a dream come true for every family, including mine. Who doesn’t have sibling rivalry in their household when there is more than one child? We all do!
Upon my review, I found that “Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings” is geared for younger children who are close in age, so all techniques did not apply to my personal household. The book also addressed introducing a new baby and techniques for that new transition.
Overall, this book was a smooth read that can be read cover to cover or if you are a busy parent looking to resolve a specific issue. The reader can find a scenario in the very detailed index and locate and read up on very quickly; scenarios ranging from “Mean Words” to “It’s Not Fair!” to “Dividing Your Time” as a parent. If you have younger children and are looking for a more harmonious relationship between your little ones, this is the book for you.
