What should you do when your kids fight and argue? Should you step in or allow them to work it out? The definition of sibling rivalry isCompetition between siblings especially for the attention, affection, and approval of their parents. This article is filled with good ideas that can assist your family to stop arguing and gain more cooperation.
When you build confidence, both in yourself and others, use strong words that evoke a sense of movement.
For instance; “I can do it” is certainly stronger than “I can’t do it.” Contrast that to “I choose to do it” which sounds more powerful and sure. The strongest is “I am going to do it! I will start right now and practice it every day until it becomes automatic action.”
Commit to Confidence
Making a decision that you can do something is great but making a commitment and an action plan is even better. The Universe rewards action. When you move forward, you will find assistance, guidance and doors opening for you. Life actually becomes easier once you move in a forward direction.
In my many books and articles available at http://www.ArtichokePress.com you will find the words to say to bring about positive change. I do this because sadly, many people have told me that they need the specific words and phrases because they have never heard them.

Say Your Encouraging Words With Emotion
The stronger the positive statements spoken with emotion and deep meaning, the more the sub-conscious mind believes you and works to make it come true. That is why affirmations work. You are repeating positive statements with feeling and emotion.

Families teach us that we can survive the pain of divorce, mental illness, abuse, alcoholism, suicide, unemployment, violence and all the other stuff that happens in life. The functional and flourishing family is most productive when it has goals and values as a unit.
When your family is supportive and respectful of the rights and dreams of each other, it is a wonderful spring-board to life.
Hello from beautiful Montana:
What constitutes respect? Do you have to like someone to be considerate, kind and courteous?
How do you work in a relationship where there is an uneven balance of power?
Several years ago there was a study done of 100 self made millionaires. They ranged in age from young 19 to well over 70. Their educational experiences extended from grade school to the Ph.D level. They differed in almost all characteristics, except they were all found to be respectful of other people.
They had determined early in their careers that everyone had something to teach and to share. They built respectful relationships by learning from others.
We tend to treat people like we see them. If we see them as arrogant, snooty or even shy, we tend to treat them in that manner. I just did a radio show recently about a second chance at making a good first impression. You will want to listen to that one, if you haven’t already.
Once you find the good or ability in other people you treat him or her better and thus they perform better. We all tend to live up to the expectations of other people.
If we see people worthy of respect, then we will treat them that way. Even when they do not demonstrate their respect for us, we can still treat them with courtesy.
A quote that I love says “If you take a man as he is, you make him worse than he was, but if you see him as being the best person possible, then he, in fact, become the best person possible.”
Encouragement is giving someone the courage to keep trying, to move forward and to fulfill their destiny. By giving respect and understanding to others in our relationship, we will all move forward.
