Administrators and teachers provide helpful guidance to children by respectfully acknowledging feelings while redirecting or limiting behavior. The goal is to support young children as they gain the ability for self-discipline. We also use problem solving as the main strategy to help children resolve conflicts.
The steps of conflict resolution we use are:
- Offer help.
- Gather information.
- Restate the problem.
- Ask for possible solutions.
- Evaluate ideas.
- Get agreement.
- Congratulate children on solving a problem.
