Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE S.I.B. JOURNAL?
The S.I.B. journal is a teaching tool and system for kids ages 6 to 12-years-old to communicate with each other. Here’s how it works:
You'll get immediate access to the digital S.I.B. Journal (2 printed copies will be mailed, if purchasing the Basic or Plus package) for your kids to complete.
The journal contains fun, educational, and interactive activities that will lead them step-by-step on how to explain their own feelings to this sibling.
Your kids will learn the names to use for their feelings as well as:
How to handle a big emotion so they don’t hit or scream
The phrase they’ll use to communicate their emotions to their siblings
How to problem-solve to resolve a fight
Identify their contribution to a fight
How to have healthy boundaries
How to use positive thoughts and positive words to make their sibling relationship stronger.
Skills to effectively communicate with their siblings.
WHO IS THIS JOURNAL SYSTEM FOR?
It's designed for kids ages 6-12 who frequently fight with their siblings - basically, every sibling relationship.
After using the S.I.B. Journal, kids will be more aware of:
Why they feel the way they do
How to share those feelings with others
What they need when they get upset
How to suggest a way to problem solve the situation
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY MATERIALS?
Within 5 minutes of placing your order, you'll receive an email from me with all your login details for the online content.
Once you log in, you have immediate access to the digital journal as well as the online materials.
While delivery times can vary based on couriers in your area, the printed copies of the journal typically arrive within 10 business days of the order.
I have full confidence that it’s going to help your kids communicate better with each other without the fighting, tantrums or name-calling.
I’m also here to fully support you to get that calm home you really want.
That's why I've included the interactive video series for kids to explain the journal and get them excited as well as a parent guide for you so you'll know how to support them throughout the journal, as well as how to react when they fight.
DOES THIS JOURNAL SYSTEM WORK FOR KIDS WITH ADD OR ADHD?
We created the journal system with all kids in mind.
The videos in the "Kids Interactive Journal" are short, bite sized chunks of information.
There are several short, fun and interactive games in the journal for the kids to do together as well.
I HAVE MORE THAN 2 KIDS. HOW DO I GET MORE COPIES OF THE JOURNAL?
While the Basic & Plus packages come with 2 hard copies of the journal, you can print as many copies of the digital version as you'd like.
You can also purchase additional hard copies for only $15 each!
DO YOU HAVE A MONEY BACK GUARANTEE?
No system works unless you follow through with it, but we are confident that if your kids complete the S.I.B. Journal system, you will see positive results in the way your kids communicate with each other and with you.
That said, if your kids complete the course work and for any reason are not completely satisfied, simply email [email protected] within 30 days of your purchase and we will refund your purchase - minus the value of the 2 nonrefundable, spiral-bound S.I.B. Journals, no questions asked.
Don't waste another precious moment feeling helpless during your kids' fights!
