Contents: Take that baby back!The anecdotes are often hilarious, but there is no doubt that the arrival of a sibling can have a huge impact on a child. How to handle the inevitable changes in your relationship with your first child when the second one comes along. And what happens when subsequent children are born.I'm bigger than you. Can your place in the family really affect your relationships, view of the world and interactions with others right into adulthood? This chapter explores whether oldest, middle and youngest child syndromes really exist, and the extent to which birth order affects the way children are treated. It's not fair! Exploring jealousy and the powerful role it can play. All children seem to think that their parents treat their siblings differently, with each child being convinced that he or she is coming off worst. Do parents unwittingly display favouritism or reinforce the differences between their children?One of a kindHow to manage twins so they can establish independent identities and what to do when twins are so different that they have nothing in common.Stop fighting! Exploring how children fight, and what provokes the arguments. How to deal with constant squabbling and petty fights, and what to do when things get out of hand (like Roy and Gemma Taylor in Teen Angels, who were knocking seven bells out of each other). Also how to deal with petty teasing, provocation and verbal unpleasantness.Behind closed doors The assumption is often that children only fight to get their parents' attention, but much of the conflict which occurs between children takes place away from their parents' view. How can you prevent the resentments from bubbling over when you're not there?What else is going on? Sometimes when children fight they are acting out difficulties in other areas of their lives. If there are problems with the parents' marriage for example, or if a child is being bullied at school, they may see this reflected in their child's interactions with his siblings. Jay Cooper was extremely violent towards his brother, because he had witnessed his mother being beaten by her partner. How parents can think more closely about what their children's fighting can tell them.
