How do you react when your child comes to you, upset about something that’s gone wrong between park playmates, classmates, teammates?

Is your immediate reaction to take your child’s side and assume they are telling you the whole story or do you tell your child you are interested in their side of the story as well as the other person’s?

We’ve learned the hard way that the “+360″ is an important +Parenting skill.
