In this interview, Dr. Laura Markham, best selling author and founder of Aha! Parenting, discusses siblings with Dandelion Seeds Positive Parenting. She addresses all stages of the sibling relationship, including how to

  • Foster a strong sibling bond with the new baby before baby even arrives
  • Introduce the older sibling to the new arrival in a way that fosters connection rather than competition
  • Support our children’s big feelings as they work through living together
  • Avoid the “label trap” as our children’s personalities emerge
  • Minimize sibling rivalry
  • Stay peaceful even when we’re struggling to do so
  • Encourage our children to have a peaceful and lifelong relationship with each other, as well

Dr. Markham’s tips encourage and inspire us to be our best selves as parents, thereby creating a peaceful existence for our children.
