API Leader and mother of 2, Lisa Feiertag explains how Attachment Parenting naturally helps prevent sibling rivalry in her home:
"From the beginning, an emphasis was placed on meeting everyone's needs within my household. This meant that each of us valued the importance of listening and communicating in an open and respectful manner with one another as high on our action list. When one person felt misunderstood or ignored, it was encouraged that this be communicated -- in a developmentally appropriate way -- so that we could try to determine the unmet need and help to reframe a situation so that a positive outcome could occur. As a result, each person is seen, heard and fully supported while the individual needs are met -- which minimized the desire to want to create conflict with someone else." ~ The Attached Family, Attachment Parenting International

"So you keep trying too. If something doesn't work, try something else. When you’re stuck, come back to that one ideal: respect your child. If you respect him now, he’ll respect others, he'll respect himself, and he’ll respect you."

"I see us as all on the same side. We’re all trying to do the best we can with what we have. And every family is different. Certainly I cannot judge anyone unless I have literally walked in his or her shoes.

Yet my views of inclusive parenting certainly don’t mean anyone shares this idea."
