Help! The Kids Are at It Again

- get attention without hitting or whining
- deal with feelings without blowing up or giving up
- establish and respect boundaries without retaliation
- solve problems without resorting to yelling or hurting
Parents need to teach and reinforce these social skills. Help! The Kids Are at It Again: Using Kids’ Quarrels to Teach “People” Skills gives you—
- tools to reduce your role as referee
- immediate help—a process you can use to handle any sibling conflict

children will gain “people” skills essential to getting along with their families and in
the outside world.
