What is conflict?
Conflict is any situation where people do not agree. Conflicts will look and sound different at different ages and in different situations.
Conflict is not necessarily a bad thing! Sometimes, it can lead to new perspectives and a deeper understanding of someone else’s point of view. We hope to show our children that it is normal and natural for disagreements to arise, but we must always deal with conflict in a caring and principled manner.
If we can support our children to resolve conflicts fairly and equally now, imagine what they can achieve later in life!
