I did it i stayed calm instead of losing my cool with them

I was in the living room watching tv and watching vincent when haiden started crying. I looked over to him and asked what happened. He said logan hit him in the head with a toy. I asked logan at a further distance but he lied. So i got up and picked him up and sat him on the couch and asked again. Again he lied so i told him ok since all you want to do is have a meltdown lets go in your room for 4mins. I took him to his room and let him have his meltdown for 4mins. I came back up and asked him again if he hit haiden and he said yes. I told him thank u for telling me the truth now go say sorry to your brother if u choose not to you have another 4mins.
We walked down and i called haiden over to me. Logan said he was sorry and i asked haiden to say thank u for saying sorry.
After the aplogy i explained to them if there is fighting, hitting i will remove the legos for the day.

      It takes a lot of energy to diffuse situations between multiple children sometimes. Glad it went well today!
