THIS EPISODE:

“Stop fighting!”

If you find yourself saying that to your kids a few too many times, then today’s show is for you!

I’m joined by Dr. Fran Walfish, author of The Self-Aware Parent and a nationally recognized child and family psychologist.

We’ll explore numerous topics that will help moms and dads better deal with (and even avoid!) one of the top frustrations of families everywhere! Dr. Fran shares her knowledge about:

  • How you can start to minimize future sibling rivalry when your first child is still a baby!
  • Why letting kids “work things out” isn’t always the best solution
  • How your child’s age, gender and birth order impacts rivalry
  • Why your newborn’s sleep habits impact their ability to share in the future
  • The importance of “trust” in your relationship with your small child
  • How to avoid “labeling” your kids and why it’s important

We’re covering a lot of ground. Tune in!
