  • I found out a long time ago, that it's best not to , unless they are hurting each other . because in a few minutes they will be playing like nothing ever happened. I think it's a silbling thing!!!

  • I try not to. My oldest step-daughter is developmentally delayed though, so sometimes her sister will take advantage. Most of the time she stands up for herself, but her sister will sometimes wear her down and I have to step in.

  • Unless it is physical I try and let them be and take stock in earplugs!

  • I usually do not unless I can hear it escalating into something more. If my children are arguing with their friends then I usually tell them that if it does not stop I am going to send them home.

  • i try not to unless they are being physical or calling names. If the arguements are with other kids at school, I will only get involved if my kids are being bullied or if they ask for my help. Last year my dd got into with another girl and the principal called and talked to me about it. It had gotten out of hand. Me, my dd, the other girl and her mother all 4 sat down and made them talk it out. Now they are the best of friends. There are times to get involved and times to stay out of it.
