In the heat of the moment it is so much easier to just remove a disputed-over object. I often feel myself internally sighing when I know that heart issues must be addressed. Going through the motions of discussing the heart issues is quite exhausting sometimes.

In situations were I take the time to discuss the heart issues involved I have one child who is more likely to stop and attempt to put their sibling first. Any suggestions for how to handle the other (younger) child who is usually content just hold on until someone else agrees that they should give up the item.
