  • LOL! I did this to my kids. When they fight, make them stand toes to toes with their hands behind their back. they're not allowed to move or talk, unless they're going to apologize to each other. I made them stand there and stare at each other till they apologized to each other. It happened 3 times and they never fought again.

  • Though if they're older teens, I'd take away all their fun until they apologize to each other. You'd be amazed at how well it works.
