Grrr so I awoke this morning to my 2 eldest having a punch up. They are 12.5 and 10. They've had the occasional hit before, as siblings do, but not like this. My sweet little DD even let out some pretty nasty swear words! And my youngest child witnessed all this and it upset him.
Soooo I have spoken to them all, discussed it all together, reiterated our family rules, they have apologised etc etc. But I told them they have to think about a punishment, and that I will think as well and that we will decide on punishment together.
I think they need a 'punishment' but also I'm wanting something to try and bring them some 'love' to each other.
I am particularly keen to hear from parents of older kids that have been through this before. Or if this happened in your childhood and what your parents did.
