Siblings Without Rivalry? Right.

As I listened to the little girl scream from the bedroom where I had stuck her when she hit the big one, held the big one clutched to me as she bawled, all while making sure dinner didn't burn and unpacking the full dishwasher I had a moment where I thought: maybe it's time to reread Siblings Without Rivalry: How to Help Your Children Live Together So You Can Live Too.

Until then, anyone have any suggestions for handling the intense rivalry that has developed betwixt my girls?  I'm about thisclose to pulling all my hair out and running off to join a commune.  Even the idea of silence is intoxicating right now.
