Sometimes they stop fighting

Sometimes our little friends in the backyard here at Ladybird Lane stop fighting … long enough anyway to grab a peanut off of the deck. Usually it seems if they get this close they go after each other but in the presence of peanuts they give it a rest. I’ve heard this works with kids, too. I remember once talking with a teacher about how she kept the kids calm down when they got a little rambunctious. The answer? “Toss out some candy and they’ll settle down for a bit.” I sort of assumed she didn’t just toss bonbons onto the floor and watch the scramble. :-)
