I was reading an article recently that mentioned that the British government holds parents accountable for a child’s acts of violence. I love the thought of the mother of a playground bully having to pay the price of her child’s inappropriate behavior, but this entire issue has me wondering—are little bouts of violent behavior normal, or is physical fighting never okay in your household?
How do you encourage your kids to resolve their differences in a nonviolent way? What is your reaction when they lash out? Do you think it’s a parent’s fault if a child resorts violence? You tell us!
