Sibling Rivalry? Resolve Conflict with The Pocket Referee Review and Giveaway

Sibling rivalry?  Children always fighting?  No matter how well-behaved or well-mannered your children are, chances are they fight from time to time.  Maybe they argue on occasion or maybe on a regular basis.  As a parent I know just how frustrating it can be when your children fight over every little thing.

Have you ever wished there was a magic trick that could end the fights and arguments between your children?  Let me tell you a little secret... The Pocket Referee!


The Pocket Referee is a solid metal coin is imprinted with the Referee on the front and a treasure chest on the back. 

The instructions for it's use are embossed on each side. “Get the Choice - Pass the Coin” and “Pass the Choice - Keep the Coin”. It is designed to feel like the authentic treasure that it will quickly become.

The child with the coin has the power to choose.  As a parent, I love the fact that this concept gives my children the ability to work through their own problems... TOGETHER!


My children are 10 (boy) and 7 (girl).  When I showed them both The Pocket Referee and explained to them how it worked, I was prepared to flip a coin or pick a number to see who had the "power" first.  My son immediately said... "Stephy can have it, girls first!"


Was the transition really going to be that easy?  Was that the tune of things yet to come?

Of course there will still be times when my husband or I may have to step in.  But now the kids can settle the little things on their own.   

The Pocket Referee puts a little bit of magic, confidence and control into the hands of my children.  Not only is it fun but it's also teaching them an important life lesson!



Originally designed by a frustrated father for his two very competitive daughters to address their sibling rivalry, The Pocket Referee is intended primarily for children, siblings or close friends who tend to find innumerable reasons to fight over things such as whose turn it is on the computer, what flavor of ice cream to buy, or what program to watch on television. It is designed so that mom, dad or grandparents aren't constantly made into the bad guy by settling the dispute in favor of one or the other.

I'm proud (and a little surprised) and how well my children have utilized The Pocket Referee since being introduced to it just a couple weeks ago.

Who would have ever thought that something as simple as a golden coin could make peace and harmony ring throughout the house!

I want to win this for my sister. She has three kids who are not, how do I say this, good? lol. No, they fight just like all brothers and sisters. I only have one kid though so I don't deal with that. I only deal with the 'I'm bored' 9000 times a day.
