ORINDA, CA – For the second year in a row, Lamorinda Moms is proud to present to the community Dr. Laura Markham, who will advise us on how to facilitate a loving, connected relationship between siblings based on her recent book, Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings: How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life. This is a much-anticipated follow-up to her talk last year, which had more than 350 attendees. This year’s event will take place on October 11, 2017, at the Orinda Intermediate School, from 7:00 to 9:00pm.
As any parent of more than one child knows, it’s challenging for even the most engaged parent to maintain a peaceful home when competition, irritation and tempers run high. In just two hours, Dr. Markham will present simple yet powerful ways to cut through the squabbling and foster a loving, supportive bond between siblings by:
•Creating deep connections with each one of your children, so that each truly believes that you couldn’t possibly love anyone else more.
•Fostering a loving family culture that encourages laughter and minimizes fighting.
•Teaching your children healthy emotional self-management and conflict resolution skills—so that they can work things out with each other, get their own needs met and respect the needs of others.
•Helping your kids forge a close lifelong sibling bond—as well as the relationship skills they will need for a life of healthy friendships, work relationships, and eventually their own family bonds.
