Amazing! Fast results, cannot believe it.

What made the experience of listening to Siblings Without Rivalry the most enjoyable?

It was easy to follow and gave great examples. Looking at the parents early lives helped. I listen while I drive and one of the times my boys were in the vehicle with me and they did not want me to turn it off. The enjoyed it also!

What other book might you compare Siblings Without Rivalry to and why?

Nothing I have ever read has been this good, on dealing with siblings.

Which scene was your favorite?

It had many good parts and all worked together for the good of my boys.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How they compare the new sibling scenario to inviting another husband or wife into the situation. That really made a difference for me. If my husband got another wife how would I feel, how would I like sharing my things with her, how would I deal with sharing his attention. Nicely done! I cannot explain it so that all can understand but if you have issues between siblings THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!

Any additional comments?

It has made my home a nicer place to be. We talk it out and apply what I learned from the book and it is unbelievable. I am so happy. I am not even all the way through but it is that good, already!

Quick - Listen to it before school gets out!

Would you consider the audio edition of Siblings Without Rivalry to be better than the print version?

I was able to get through it more quickly by listening to it.

Have you listened to any of Kathe Mazur’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Any additional comments?

I'm so happy my book club decided to read Siblings without Rivalry before school gets out. This title has been languishing on my to read list for awhile. I thought I would get some tips on how to stop the bickering, but the book is more than that. It isn't just for parents. I was constantly reflecting on my own upbringing. I had a real "moment" with this book. I clearly see why I have the relationship that I do with my brother. Moving forward I'm so motivated to change my approach to my kids.
