Most of this book follows from the idea that kids are people and have needs and desires that are understandable if you actually try to understand them. It gives a lot of good conversation patterns for empathetically interacting with people who are frustrated or upset, which seem pretty useful for both kids and adults.

Siblings Without Rivalry guides the way to family peace and tranquillity with humor and compassion for both parents and children. Illustrated, action-oriented, and easy to understand, it's packed with sensitive yet sensible ways to turn quarreling siblings and frustrated parents into an open, communicative family.

Excellent strategies seriously hampered by archaic parenting styles.. If she stripped the book of the hundreds of casual references to hitting and spanking kids, it would have gotten 4 or 5 stars. As is, 2 stars is generous.

if you don't have time to read this entire book then i would suggest just skimming through and finding their Quick Tip summary pages where they checklist format share the key strategies and tips which I ripped out for future reference,

some ideas that really resonated with me and I found helpful are the sections on:

1. Being a role model and model how to talk in front of kids

2. Say appreciative things about the child so that they overhear it

3. Find the good in children and appreciate that

4. I found the Teacher Parent relationship chapter to be amazing. They provide insights into the needs of both parents and teachers.

Some ideas I found helpful are...
With teachers at the parent teacher conference... share what works at home, the need that teachers have for parents to try to share information with the teacher about their child so they can learn more about your child and for parents to show appreciation and give feedback for the efforts that the teachers are making, create a plan collaboratively with the teacher according to what your child needs to work on and follow up to let the teacher know that you are trying out the plan, if teacher is giving feedback about your child then one can bring a notebook and rephrase it and write down and say aloud a solution focused action step such as "Ok, ... needs to read more"

5. Brainstorming for ideas with the child, including and listing all ideas (withholding evaluation) and then going through it afterwards to see which to try out
