Help The Kids Work It Out
You don’t have to jump in to save your child from a situation that isn’t immediately dangerous. Give them a chance and watch their reaction. If the kids are upset or unable to find their way through talking it out, give them tools. Help both of the kids say how they feel and why they’re upset. There is always more to a situation than is immediately visible, and digging a little deeper can help illuminate the cause of the misbehavior. Not only that, being able to talk through uncomfortable situations is a valuable life skill.
