Another parenting must: Mediation training

"Science Daily — Children whose parents were trained in mediation skills had better conflict-resolution skills than those whose parents did not receive training. That's the finding of a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario and published in the May/June 2007 issue of the journal Child Development."

This skill would be useful in so many aspect of every day life that they should add it to the home economics curriculum. Just as important as learning to cook, or carrying an egg around in a basket for days on end.
