Will You take Side?


What would you do?
Your kids were fighting with your sibling's kids.
And they were both bruised and bled.
What would you do?
Will you take side?
*******
Incidents like this happen all the time.
It's common knowledge that children quarrel.
Some parents takes side and gets heated up,
Making the whole thing ugly.
*******
Now what would you do?
*******
If the incident occurs before your eyes;
You can easily break them up,
And deal with them one at a time,
And find out why.
*******
What if it happens behind your back?
What would you do?
You may stay neutral,
But you may have to do guess works as to what has happened.
*******
Now we know children will take side,
How are we going to get the truth?
How are we going to know who is wrong?
And do we trust them to tell the truth?
*******
Some said parents must not take side,
They should listen and solve the problem amiably.
Taking side will only create arguments among sibling,
Making the whole thing worse.
*******
What would you do?
Some said just take the kids together,
Ask them why and punish them,
Making sure they learn the lessons.
*******
Some insist on no punishment,
They don't believe in punishment,
For they not even punish their kids,
And they don't believe punishment is the solution.
*******
Some insist siblings coming together,
Listen and solve the problem together,
Then take the necessary actions,
Which everyone agree.
*******
Now what would you do?
Do you take side when kids quarrel?
