  • Kids conflict resolution

In the twenty-first century, children have problems that are entirely different from those that existed earlier. Children learn through observing you and others, rewards and punishments and through electronic media. It is important to provide young children with opportunities to work on their problem solving skills and to offer gentle guidance and encouragement when they are struggling. Jumping in too soon to solve the problem does not allow the child to discover the various skills needed to grow.

As much as we try to avoid it, conflict is a normal part of life. Helping children learn to manage conflict effectively will also help them to experience more fulfilling friendships and enjoy better social experiences, both at school and outside of it. Of course, how well children are able to resolve conflict is directly related to their age, stage of development and life experiences. For example, a young child may not know how to compromise without assistance or have the emotional capacity to empathise with the needs of others. Equipping children of all ages with the strategies shared below will help them become more effective at resolving conflict and being a good friend and a brilliant human being.

As parents you can try to build a healthy communication system with them. Communication is one of the key factors that help to strengthen the relationship and you might also be able to know what is disturbing your child. Once you have heard each other and found the problem then you need to look for a solution. Brainstorm together to think of ways in which you could resolve the conflict. Think of as many solutions as you can, even if they seem silly at first. You can also take assistance from people who have expertise in conflict resolution for children.
