Making Your Children Get Along
In case you hadn't figured it out from your own childhood, best friends forever is just a myth. Face it -- kids fight and they don't always fight fair. At some point during their childhood, your son or daughter is going to get in an argument with a classmate, neighbor or other acquaintance.So as a parent, where do you fit in when your child is butting heads with another kid? There are some simple measures you can take to deal - or not deal - with conflicts with a cool head. You need to accept that children have disputes, and they need to fight their own battles. Realize that some friendships naturally come to an end. Don't force it - if your child doesn't want to be friends with another kid, then let it go. So long as your child isn't being cruel to another, you should stay out of it and let your child make his or her own decisions.
