    Although this scenario features preschoolers, it reminds me of an incident with my son Bob when he was 9 or 10 years old.

    A new family had moved into the neighborhood. He proudly walked into our house with one of the sons.
    "Hi Mom," he said. "This is Larry. We had a fight. We're friends."

    Neither boy was ever known as a fighter -- but I assumed it was one way young boys have of making friends. <g>

    Thanks for your help and I think that was a one way of making friends.
