How to be Zen With Your Friend, Even When Your Kids Fight

You love your friends and their friendships mean the world to you.  You would do anything for them and they for you.  That is until, their kid and your kid don’t get along.  It’s the worst feeling because you love this person, but you may not always like how their kids act.  Each parent, parents differently, and often times your way doesn’t match their way when it comes to the children. You may let your kids eat sugar cereals and they think that’s poison.
