Turning conflict into opportunity.
Looking for a little extra support resolving conflicts in your classroom? Try changing your mindset from solving problems for children to helping children learn how to successfully resolve their own conflicts.
Learning how to find solutions that work for everyone is an important learning experience for young children. By modeling HighScope’s six steps in conflict mediation, you will begin to support and develop children’s ability to problem-solve. With repeated practice, children start to engage in the conflict mediation process independently. You will notice children regulating their emotions, articulating their perspectives, listening to others, breaking down complex situations, thinking creatively, and collaborating to follow through with a solution that works for everyone.
