  • 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.
