It's no fun to listen to your children fight. But, sibling rivalry can be a positive thing, if parents react to it I the right way.
On The Early Show, Nick Junior magazine Editor in Chief Freddi Greenberg offered some advice on how parents should respond.
Really, when kids bicker, "They want attention," Goldberg said. "That is really what think want and experts agree that, underlying all the fighting, it's often not about what the kids are fighting about, it's a cry for attention from their parents. So, it's something for parents to really think about. If their kids fight all the time, just sort of think about whether the kids are getting enough one-on-one attention, even if you can give them 15 minutes a day, before bed, early in the morning, it could go a long way to get rid of those flames that seem to be sparking all day long."

It urges people not to vote — that is — until they learn about issues and candidates and what they stand for.
Mark Kitchens, AARP's director of media relations and strategy, discussed the unusual campaign on The Early Show Thursday with co-anchor Rene Syler, as part of the continuing "Young at Heart" series.
