When you have two children who are fighting, here is what you do:

  1. Let them know they are going to play a game with each other right now.
  2. Put them standing across from each other or sitting across from each other
  3. Tell them that they are going to time the while they look at each other and smile. If they start laughing, they have to start all over.
  4. Time them and watch how long it takes for them to become friends again. Should be about five minutes or less.
  5. Remember: they need to keep smiling at each other the entire time or the clock starts again.
