Texas Conflict Coach Audio Blog by Pattie Porter

Patricia Porter
Blog Talk Radio Host Pattie Porter and guest discuss how siblings that squabble don't have to punch and shout.

Summer is ending and the school year draws near. Our kids have had lots of fun times together. Siblings can be the best of friends, but conflict and disagreements are also a natural part of their ever-changing relationships. We may not always realize it, but we have many ways to help our kids learn how to "fight fair" - to work out disagreements without punching or shouting.

Join returning guest, Parent Coach Janet Bonnin of Fine-Tuned Families. We will dive into a great discussion with many tips and ideas you can take to head off big "blow ups" and guide constructive communication. We will also be joined by a super mother of eight, Maggie Luevano, and two of her kids who are part of the Hill Country musical group, "Mariachi 'L'". Maggie and her kids will share stories of growing up in this fantastic family, a brief history of the group's formation, and how the family has dealt with sibling disagreements over the years. Don't miss this great conversation!

Janet Bonnin is a Life Coach, Industrial Engineer and mother of three. She works with busy parents to strengthen family teamwork, parent more effectively, de-stress, and get more done with less effort at work and at home. Parents who work with Janet create deeper, more loving relationships and focus on raising awesome kids!
