sibling rivalry

DS 5 and DD1 4 are terrible at the moment, winding each other up constantly. DS takes DD1s things all the time just to get a reaction, which always happens in the form of crying and screaming. They are actually pretty close but seem unable to talk nicely to each other sometimes. Any tips, or can anyone recommend a good book to guide me? Its really grinding me down

I highly recommend 'Siblings without Rivalry' ... how to help your children live together so you can too ... by Adele Farber. I found this book very helpful.

It is by the same author as 'How to talk so kids will listen & listen so kids will talk'.
