I have a habit of letting my children sort out their differences as much as possible but there are times I have to break up fights over toys or games. I dont like to do it much as I feel like my children might think I'm taking sides or interfering, when they are capable of working it out themselves.
When do you intervene? How hands off do we have to be in case we're considered 'helicopter parents' - lord knows, those are dirty words in parenting anymore!!
