The emphasis in mediating with children should fall on determining and including their interests in final settlement agreements while limiting their involvement in ongoing conflict (Bracken 219). It is accordingly not necessary to include children in the mediation process from the beginning to the end. The mediator must decide which parts of the mediation the child should attend (Powell 85), although it appears that the best integration of children's input is achieved when it is obtained early in the process (Saposnek (2004) 162).
