The nurse is watching two siblings, ages 7 and 9 years, verbally arguing over a toy. The nurse has counseled the parent before about how to handle this situation. The nurse should judge that the teaching has been effective when the parent does which of the following?
1. Tells the siblings to stop arguing and shake hands.
2. Ignores the arguing and continues what she is doing.
3. Tells the children they will be punished when they go home.
4. Says they will not go out to lunch now since they have argued.
The best approach by the mother is not to interfere. The children need to learn how to solve disagreements on their own. If the parent always intervenes, then the children do not learn how to do this. Siblings will disagree and argue as part of normal development. Punishment, including telling the children that they will not go out to lunch, is not warranted.
