The children watched the two screeching boys with bewilderment and fascination. “Mine!” shouted one boy, clutching the trains.

“’S’not yours! Mine! Gimme,” the other lad shouted, pulling on the toys. The other tots could only watch as the two big boys fought over the only train set in the room.

“I had it first – you don’t play properly!”

“Teacher told me I could play – not fair!”

As the squabble escalated, the kids stood agape wondering what was happening.

“Boris! Bob! Take a time out and let the others play.” The two boys retreated to the naughty step, abashed.
