To her shock, her first child cried for 2-4 hour periods for the first 3 months! After her second arrived, she experienced the wonderful world of sibling rivalry, which progressed to constant bickering and fighting as the children grew older.
Around this time, she joined a parenting support group where she learned Adlerian psychology. Immediately, she began see how her parenting problems began to be solved, almost miraculously, one after another.
