What’s With Siblings?! Why Do They/Don’t They Get Along?

March 8, 2012

Alice Kaltman, one of our Experts in parent coaching, is doing her classic talk on siblings and how they interact this Saturday. I can’t tell you how many times I have referred to her words on siblings in some of my most difficult parenting moments…like, um today.

Whether you have school-aged or younger kids, or are expecting a new addition and want some tips on how to make things go smoothly (or, as smoothly as possible!), you should attend. There are still spots available for SIBLING SURVIVAL, her talk this Saturday morning in Boerum Hill.

Here is the jist about her talk:
Sibling Survival:
Parenting two or more children can be a challenging and exhausting job. Siblinghood affords children intimate opportunities to learn the valuable life lessons of compassion, co-operation and compromise. When siblings co-exist harmoniously, life is a joy. But when they fight, parents are stressed to the max. This talk focuses on how to defuse sibling tensions by looking at the underlying issues and assumptions that get in the way of effective parenting.
