Handling Opposition - Parent 3
Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning how to handle opposition. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home!
Definition: Handling opposition is defined as addressing a conflict or disagreement with another person. The other person may be hostile and angry.
Student Goal: When faced with an opposing viewpoint, the student will use a learned strategy to handle the situation positively.
Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:
- Having opposing ideas and outlooks on a particular subject happens several times throughout the day.
- People can have opposing ideas on specific situations and still maintain a friendship or working relationship.
- It is important to listen and hear the other person’s opposing viewpoint.
- Can you have a relationship with a person who has an opposing viewpoint?
- Allow your child to share any situations when they had to handle opposition. Discuss what strategies they used.
