Organized for easy-access by topics that provoke the most arguments among siblings, such as room sharing and borrowing toys, as well as issues related to step and half siblings. Covers: the benefits of sibling arguments; the effects of age differences in siblings; the importance of spending quality time with each child; the pros and cons of hand-me-downs; what to do when teachers compare siblings; and, when to seek help.

Abstract
In this book, the author, a Harvard psychologist, argues that parents, not peers or television, are the primary shapers of their children’s moral lives. He contends that parents' intense focus on children's happiness; obsession with achievement; and desire to be closer to their children; have eroded their influence as moral mentors and have imperiled their children's moral growth. The author highlights inspiring parents, teachers and coaches, and presents concrete strategies for moral, happy children.

Abstract
Les enfants courent toujours. Nous leur répétons inlassablement de ralentir pour éviter de tomber et de se blesser. Une fois adulte, on court autant qu?eux, mais il n?y a plus personne pour nous dire de ralentir. Le marathon est quotidien : le 8 à 5, la routine, les enfants, les responsabilités, l?épicerie, les repas? Essoufflé. Épuisé. Brûlé. Combien de fois répétez-vous ces mots dans une seule journée. On attend les vacances avec impatience. On passe un temps fou à les planifier, on essaie de tout faire ce qu?on n?a pas fait dans l?année. Elles passent toujours trop vite. Et on revient au boulot étourdi et vidé.
On court après le bonheur. On espère devenir une meilleure personne. On vise plus de performance au travail. On recherche une relation amoureuse épanouie. Et une vie sociale bien remplie. Ah! Et les enfants? On ne pouvait pas imaginez à quel point ça prendrait autant d?énergie. Imaginez, on en a fait deux, trois ou peut-être même quatre. Comment faisaient nos arrière-grands-parents pour en élever autant? Quelle leçon n?a-t-on pas comprise?
Peut-on repenser son horaire et gagner du temps? Avons-nous seulement le temps de nous arrêter un moment et de repenser notre emploi du temps? Si vous aviez le pouvoir d?arrêter l?horloge, que feriez-vous en premier? Si on vous offrait une heure de plus par jour, comment l?occuperiez-vous? Je vous invite à une quête. Celle de trouver un sens à cette course contre la montre. Pour eux, mais surtout pour vous.

This book argues that we live in a society where real progress has been made in the development of child-centered parenting, education and care, but that this cultural shift has produced a generation of children who are entitled to the same rights as adults but not ready to accept grown-up responsibilities - children who are "loved too much". Dr. Maggie Mamen describes common characteristics of the pampered child, and offers practical advice on how to strike an effective balance between caring for and nurturing children while at the same time maintaining authority and demanding respect.

Abstract
Assumer son autorité avec bienveillance et constance est la clé pour instaurer une bonne discipline à la maison, un élément essentiel dans l'éducation de l'enfant et le fondement de la famille. C'est aussi un défi que les parents - comme tout adulte en position d'autorité auprès d'un enfant - tentent de relever chaque jour. En effet, savoir doser sensibilité, fermeté, épanouissement de l'enfant et attentes de l'adulte est un véritable apprentissage. Il exige du temps, de la persévérance et l'acquisition de certaines habiletés.
