It starts with you
How do you handle conflict in your own life? Do you have a tendency to power over by becoming defensive and aggressive? Or do you tend to power under by shying away from the problem?
If you have kids or work with kids, it’s important to know that they learn how to handle conflict by watching us handle our own, and by the ways we guide them through the conflict they experience. So - it’s important that we learn the tools to do conflict well.
But as adults, we can also learn the tools and knowledge we need to teach children how to handle their difficult conflict situations. With the right training, even those of us who have doubts about our conflict management abilities can quickly become strong, kind, and capable at managing conflict, and helping children do the same.
Who is this for?
Strong & Kind Monthly is designed for parents, educators, social workers, administrators, and more. It’s for adults who have or work with children in any capacity, and who want to help children and teens better manage conflict.
Most of us didn’t learn conflict management skills growing up at home. We didn’t learn them at school, or at teacher’s college, or even on the job. But the good news is that as adults, we can learn how to manage conflict, and doing so can make an enormous difference to our own relationships, and to the children and teens who look to us for guidance.
“When you avoid conflict to make peace with other people, you start a war within.” — Brené Brown
