Johan Van Niekerk's insight:

As adults, do we not learn more from mentors (or anyone else for that matter) when we have made a mistake and are encouraged to address the issue at hand differently. "yes, that was a good attempt but what if we try it this way perhaps?..... or in for instance a case of two 2-3 year olds fighting over a toy, just taking it away and say here are some other toys and we can have the one which caused the fight back when we have calmed down.  Children need to be addressed in different ways according to their age differences. They all need certain parameters though!
