"Why do they keep fighting?"
Conflict is normal and the way kids learn to get through it either prepares them for a life of constructive conflict resolution - or not.
Jim and Lynne Jackson, co-founders of Connected Families, teach a brilliantly simple tool called The Peace Process. This process has equipped thousands of parents to constructively guide their kids to solve conflicts well. Now, they’re excited to offer this online course to you!
Read these testimonials from course participants:
Last spring when we went on vacation, we hit our low point in our girls' conflict with each other- they were being physically aggressive and screaming at each other, usually several times every day. We felt discouraged and desperate, so we dove into the Connected Families' ideas about sibling conflict. Over the summer things really began to change. By this spring when we went on vacation - they had no meltdowns, and we were blown away by how well the girls treated each other the entire time. Quite a miracle for our family from a year ago!

I loved many things about this course. First, the content was excellent. The information was helpful and practical. My kids liked watching the video clips that were for them and it helped to involve them in the training process so it wasn't just something I was imposing on them, but we were all going through it together. Second, I loved that the course was doable and it didn't feel overwhelming to commit to it. Like most parents, I have a full schedule, but it wasn't too hard to fit the sessions into my busy schedule because of how they are formatted. You can easily break up a session into 10 -12 minute chunks or you can go through the whole thing at once, depending on your schedule. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a family of peacemakers.

My kids conflict was putting a big damper on my desire to come home after work. This course helped me feel more confident that I can let them sort it out. Now, their conflict doesn't get as heated. When they start arguing with each other or tattling on each other I ask "Would you like to do the peace process?" Most recently, they've started to jump right in on their own. I love watching them sort it out!

We didn't extinguish sibling conflict. More importantly, we gave our kids and ourselves a tool for how to get to the heart of the conflict, find a real solution, and reconnect. We all have a simple framework for how to turn things around.

This course not only helps in sibling conflicts, but general family conflicts. We're using the peace process a lot - at least acknowledging what's going on & trying to work towards complete resolution/celebration.

Jim and Lynne Jackson speak to thousands of parents a year through Connected Families, the ministry they started in 2002. They both brought their unique experience to Connected Families; Jim working with at-risk teens, and Lynne as a pediatric occupational therapist working with sensory sensitive youngsters. And both had loads of experience raising their spirited young crew of three. After being dissatisfied with conventional parenting methodology, they began a journey to discover what it takes to see big changes happen – not so much in managing behavior, but in the quality of relationships that build strong influence with kids' hearts.
Your Course Moderator: Stacy Bellward
Stacy's history with Sibling Conflict started at 5 years old with her younger sister. It was fierce and ugly and left unhealthy patterns of resolution that did not serve her well. She and her sister had a "coming together" as young adults and wonder how things would have been different if they had learned The Peace Process as kids. That is why she is here - to help you learn and implement this in your home.
Some questions you might have:
Could you tell me more about Connected Families before I commit?
Connected Families exists to bring uncommon grace and truth to those parents longing for more than simple answers and quick fixes. The basic idea is this: When parents make a primary goal of getting their children to behave right, parents and kids generally become adversaries. But when parents learn to focus first on helping their children grow into healthy, biblically-based belief about themselves and the world, these parents become allies with their kids and gain great influence in their lives. So we equip parents with a new primary goal, one that positions them as allies instead of adversaries.
