Attenuate rivalry between siblings with Faber & Mazlish

"When siblings are allowed to express their negative feelings towards each other, they end up loving each other"

Authors of "Siblings Without Rivalry" (2012)

What is “Understand and attenuate rivalry between siblings“?

This Faber and Mazlish workshop gives parents the practical tools they need to cope with conflict, encourage cooperation, reduce competition, and make it possible for children to experience the joys of their special relationship. We find together how and when to intervene in fights, provide suggestions on how to help children channel their hostility into creative outlets, and demonstrate how to treat children unequally and still be fair.

8 good reasons to do it

  • to stay in touch with your children and maintain this link
  • to take a step back and change your look
  • to go towards more cooperation
  • to promote autonomy
  • to look for solutions together
  • to exchange and adapt your words
  • to be heard and taken into account that your children trust and know they can count on you
  • to accompany them to respect and respect others.

How does the workshop happen?

The workshops are aimed at all adults who wish to improve their relationship with children by experiencing a different way of communicating in our usual way and observing the consequences.

That’s why each meeting, lasting approximately 2h-2h30, takes place in a fun atmosphere using concrete examples, scenarios, comics and role plays.
