The authors of Mom Always Liked You Best are co-founders of Elder Decisions a mediation, training and consulting firm that specializes in helping families resolve disagreements. Drawing on the authors' experiences with getting siblings to compromise, the book discusses how to use negotiating tools to work through issues. The authors explain the importance of understanding the underlying interests behind the dispute before discussing solutions and using active listening techniques to better understand where siblings are coming from.
