My big girl using her sibling jiu jitsu on her littlest brother when he began melting down because another sibling was singing a song with him. This girl...she occasionally loses her cool, but I see a future in mediating conflicts.
For the record he immediately calmed down and began politely requesting the offending sibling to stop singing along with him and a period of peace ensued in the van.
