What we believe about ourselves and others--especially our children--in conflict strongly influences how we try to resolve conflict. Suspending our disbelief may improve our success with conflict resolution processes.
Let's push back against our doubts and engage our creativity rather than trust in the past to predict the future. We are dynamic beings with limitless possibilities. Our children will become increasingly capable of living and applying the great things we are teaching them as we identify and reject ineffective beliefs about conflict resolution.

Recently, I interviewed with Lisa Valentine Clark of BYU Radio about the power of sibling relationships. Listen here for details of that interview that focused on both helping our children and improving our own sibling relationships.
