If things are going rough, make a snack and bond over it. I’ve yet to see two people be angry at each other while eating a plate of nachos. Kids are no different. They get angry and frustrated, particularly easily when hungry, so take a few minutes, sprinkle some shredded cheese over some tortilla chips, pop it in the microwave for a minute or so and then voila, you have a plate of instant bonding. Never underestimate the power of nachos.
