It’s debatable: Help your child see both sides
There’s always more than one side to an issue, but when your child is arguing, it can be hard for him to see the other side. Try throwing out a statement such as, “Homework should be banned forever,” or “Kids shouldn’t have to do chores.” Have your child list reasons that support his view on the subject. Then ask him to think of reasons that support the other side. Talk as a family about which view is more convincing.
