Parenting Book Club

Do you envision peaceful afternoons of your kids playing nice together, but instead find yourself yelling, threatening and just plain wishing they would get along.  Sibling fighting can lead you to feeling exhausted and not the parent you want to be when you are left just not knowing what to do.  As a therapist and a mom, I have come to believe there is no one way to parent and we all do the best we can, but there are a few things we can do differently that would help our family if we are struggling.  I recommend few parenting books and have come to learn you “take what you need and leave the rest”.  However, there are some that are full of very useful information.  Sometimes, lack of change happens when we read something quickly and forget all the information or only try one or two new strategies.  I have decided to host a book club that will take place over 4 weeks.  During this time, we will read Siblings without Rivalry: How to help your children live together so you can live too by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish.  Over the few weeks, we will read, discuss and slowly try strategies that can help change the dynamics with your kids.  I will also provide psycho education on positive parenting strategies, the brain and emotion coaching.  So if you would like to find ways to decreasing the fighting and arguing in your house with the siblings, sign up today as space is limited.
