Having a brother or sister can be tough. It can also be great, but it's hard to see the great parts with so many bad parts getting in the way. Problems like fighting and bossing. Teasing and jealousy. Tattling. Pestering. And more.
But what if you could do something about those problems? Clear them away? Then you'd be able to actually enjoy your siblings!

As a nanny of two siblings (9 and 6) who are struggling to get along recently, this book is definitely joining our shelf! The worksheets are a great addition to the text and will definitely help the 9yo work out some strategies to deal with his younger (and more temperamental) sister. This has some great tips for parents and caregivers as well—I think most adults with or around children are ready to stop playing kid referees all day!
As a parent of multiples who grew up as an only child, the amount of sibling bickering astounds me. This is a nice book for older children to not only help understand parents views a little more but also know this is a pretty common occurrence and there are ways to help solve problems.
