There’s A Two (2) Step Strategy For Helping Your Child Deal with Conflict Resolution
We’ll discuss why it seems like kids always resort to hitting, crying, or tattling rather than solving a problem more independently?
Don’t be alarmed. These are age-appropriate responses: Hitting, crying and tattling seem natural when issues arise. When a child expresses themselves with these types of behaviours, they are not alone!
Unfortunately for the child, these reactions don’t solve the problems in the long term and this behaviour doesn’t lead to effective independent problem-solving.
All kids need conflict resolution skills and these skills must be taught and practiced.
