Arguments with a friend can be very upsetting for kids, especially when, in the heat of the moment, someone declares, “You’re not my friend anymore!” It takes time and practice for kids to learn how to resolve conflicts.
Arguing with a friend can be very upsetting for kids, but it doesn't have to mean the end of a friendship.

Few parents are worried about their kids becoming violent criminals. The more relevant question for most parents is, “Will playing violent video games make my kid more likely to shove a classmate, squabble with a sibling, or be sassy to me?” The answer is maybe, but not necessarily.

It could have been awful. A movie that teaches kids about emotions could have been dry and preachy. Instead, Pixar’s "Inside Out" is an exciting and compelling tour of inner life that’s grounded in science plus an authentic understanding of how kids feel. Read on for three key lessons you and your kids can learn about emotions!

In Part 1 of this post, I talked about research on how playing violent video games is related to aggressive thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Overall, the evidence points to small effects of violent video games on aggressive thoughts, feelings, and behavior. These effects don’t always appear and seem to be greater for some people than others, but they also may have a cumulative impact over time.

Do you every wonder WHY boys feel the need to play rough with each other? And should we let them? And what if they are TOO rough?
Why do boys wrestle, rough house, and play pretend fighting?

You’ve met that child: The one who insists on special treatment, who thinks the rules don’t apply to him, who brags and seems insensitive to anyone else’s feelings or wishes, who has loud, public tantrums if he doesn’t get his way… This child may have some superficial charm, but if you spend much time with her, you walk away feeling irritated and thinking, “Who does she think she is?!” Or worse.
What really causes narcissism in children and how parents can help.

+Eileen Kennedy-Moore This approach seems a lot better than the typical 'sandwich' method mentioned previously. The tone and timing of criticism makes all the difference. It feels like this method is more about creating a dialogue between the two parties and mutually improving each other's behavior as opposed to controlling another person.
