Austin Montessori School is pleased to offer a six-part parenting workshop, "Siblings WithoutRivalry," led by Sveta Pais and Monica Pesoli. This workshop is based on the work of Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, authors of acclaimed books 'How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk,' and 'Siblings Without Rivalry.' During six sessions parents form a learning community to explore the following areas:
- Supporting siblings in expressing their feelings with equanimity when in disagreement.
- Treating children based on need, rather than equity.
- Avoiding placing siblings in roles so that each child comes to become his or her whole self.
- Collaborating with siblings so that they can move toward resolving their conflicts.
