Desperate times

Have you ever encountered 2 kids who no matter what could NOT get along? Cousin E and Mexicanjumpingbain have been pestering each other all.day.long. It's more that I can deal with alone. After a 3 parent- 2 child conference where we discussed how badly you can hurt your friends with words...and watched their eyes glaze over, we decided it was time for something drastic.
We taped them together...only for an hour, but hopefully it will be enough time for them to begin learning teamwork and the Golden Rule.
Hope it's effective!

Haha! I have threatened my kids with this but haven't done it yet. Let me know how that works out. :)

That's great! I was listening to a Family Life radio program on parenting and they suggested taking two kids (teens) who were antagonizing each other and putting them in a small boring room together (i.e. powder room) until they could work out their issues.

Not sure how it would work for younger kids, especially BOYS, but could be worth a try!

Is it just me or are there others who can't wait to tape a couple kids together?????
