Joey and his sister Joanna fight over the T.V.
But I want to watch Disney!
You guys need to figure out this problem by yourselves like responsible kids.
Mom wants them to resolve the situation on their own.
We both want to watch two different things!
How are we supposed to do that?!
The older sister Joanna decides to problem solve and find a solution to this conflict.
Okay! But it needs to be fair.
How about this, we can both give each other time to watch T.V.
Each one of them wants to watch a different show.
Okay, everyday we will both get to watch T.V. for an hour.
When we get back from school you will go watch T.V.. You will watch for 1 hour while I do my homework. Then we will switch. After 1 hour of me doing homework and you watching T.V., I will get to watch T.V.. Then you will do your homework for 1 hour while I watch T.V. for 1 hour.
Mom wants them to problem solve and figure it out themselves. The kids don't think they can do that.
* 1 Week Later *
One week later and we haven't argued at all!
I am so happy that you guys came up with a solution on your own! I am so proud of you guys!
They both agree on the solution Joanna has came up with.
Joanna resolved the conflict.
It was one week later and the kids haven't argued at all. Mom was so proud of them for being so responsible.
