Stop the Sibling Wars

Plus: How to make mealtimes better and the history of egg freezing.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

‘Tis the season for presents, eggnog, cozy footed jammies and the annual morphing of your children from angelic little cherubs into their evil holiday counterparts: gift monsters. If your kids can’t seem to compromise on who gets the first turn on the new scooter, or first crack at the fancy new smart speaker that plays songs that rhyme with “maybe bark,” Melinda Wenner Moyer has got the goods on how to settle even the most explosive sibling conflicts. Also on the site this week, Molly Elizalde on why it took so long for egg freezing to go mainstream, and Virginia Sole-Smith with tips for making mealtimes a little less miserable.

Also be sure to check out the 25 best children’s books of 2019, and one of our most popular guides of the year: The key to getting better sleep when you have a new baby (because who doesn’t want to go into 2020 with a little more rest?).

Thanks for reading!
