Although we don’t always like to admit it, all families fight. Spouses argue with each other, siblings butt heads, and children disobey their parents. Even extended family members can get pulled into a nuclear family feud.

Everyday disputes between family members — whether over what to buy at the grocery store, what movie to watch, or who gets the biggest slice of cake — are natural. In fact, frequent fights can indicate emotional closeness in a family, as people who feel connected to each other will often be more open about their feelings. But it’s also important to know how to resolve these conflicts when they occur, so that the family can learn from each dispute and ultimately grow.

The Little Conflict Guide addresses the reality of family conflict and offers readers methods for conflict resolution. Using a humorous and warm tone, Schneider presents practical, thought-provoking ideas to end fights and restore harmony. With one or two pages devoted to each solution, including bright illustrations, this guide will help families resolve their conflicts in record time and feel prepared to tackle any disputes that crop up in the future!
