Stuck in the Middle

Stuck in the Middle
I'm stuck in the middle of something. Sometimes my friends have the stupidest fights, and I can't solve them all. Can you help me?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It's unfortunate when disagreements spoil the good times you could be having with your friends. It's kind of you to want to stop the fights, but it isn't possible to solve all the problems other people are having. Your friends will have to decide for themselves if they want to stop fighting over unimportant things.

If these kids continue to fight, it might be necessary to find others to play with who will be more agreeable. Removing yourself from these situations would make it clear that you aren't going to get involved in the fights.

Best wishes,
The Highlights Editors
