Sibling Falls Outs...
What works well for your family when your children fall out?
Lets face it, it can be a pretty regular and natural occurance in most households. Most parents I speak with say it can be quite exhausting at times though.
How quickly can we pick ourselves up, move on and not keep repeating the same UPSET? What is causing the fall out in the first place and why are our children arguing?
This week I was teaching a Year 4 class and a teaching student came in to observe for the afternoon
A group of 5 boys came in from lunch play, they'd had a bit of a fall out and were hot and bothered. Once they'd cooled off, had a drink and calmed more, I called them over to listen to their stories.
Afterwards, the student's response was 'wow that was so calm and efficient, I never thought of resolving a fall out that way, thank you for sharing'
It's the same strategy I use with my own children, who at the ages of 13 and 11, have some pretty big disagreements at times.
What works well for you when you deal with your family Upsets?
This is a topic I will also be sharing on June 23rd.
