Using the STAR Parenting process, this manual gives parents the tools they need to teach children how to get attention without hitting or whining, deal with feelings without blowing up or giving up, establish and respect boundaries, and solve problems without resorting to yelling or hurting. It offers parents advice on how to reduce their role as referee, gives immediate help with a process to handle any sibling conflict, and provides easy-to-understand examples of real-life situations, as well as giving them insight into ways they may be encouraging the quarreling they hate. While the squabbling between siblings won’t stop altogether, this guide does demonstrate how to instill “people” skills that will help children get along within the context of their family and in the outside world.
