I've been listening to the bickering between my two kids, 9 and 6, increase every day. Just now i finally had enough of it and called them to me to yell at them, yet again, about all the fighting with each other they do.
Instead of yelling, I thought of having them say something nice about the other. My daughter's (6) ideas: He does Taekwondo with me. He goes to church with me. My son's (9) ideas: She loves me. She's nice to me.
So then I made them face each other and say just one nice thing about the other that did not involve "I" or "me". They STILL struggled.
I feel like I've failed somehow.

My younger sister and I fought ALL THE TIME! My mom finally came up with the best punishment EVER! She made us sit on the couch hugging each other until we stopped fighting. We HATED it. We always started out hating each other, but ended up playing and having fun. Hug it out.
The new take on it is this...I LOVE IT!
