Conflict Resolution - Parent 2

Foundational

Parents

Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning about identifying conflicts/disagreements and ways to resolve them in a peaceful, positive way.

Definition: Conflict resolution is the ability to assess a social situation that is not going well and develop strategies to improve current and future interaction. It involves two or more people working together to find a peaceful solution to a disagreement or problem.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What is a conflict?
  • What should we do to solve a conflict in a peaceful way?
  • What can happen if you don’t solve a conflict peacefully?
  • Why should we attempt to solve a conflict in a peaceful way?
  • Can you give an example of what can cause a conflict?
  • Have you ever been involved in a disagreement or conflict with others (such as classmates, friends, siblings, etc.)?

Activity

Draw a picture or write about a time you had to resolve a conflict with a family member. Discuss the following questions with your child after they complete the activity: How did you solve it? Would or could you solve it differently if it happens again?
