My 9 and 12 year old fight like cats and dogs - do you let them fight it out, or when do you step in?

  • My 3 and 8 year old fight. I let them as long as no one is crying and they are not hitting.

  • I let my son and daughter work it out. It never becomes physical just a lot of talk and then they are back to playing the WII
