My Method of Conflict Resolution
August 11, 2017
My emphasis on problem solving and conflict resolution supports our anti-bias goal, where children come and listen to and respect each other’s hopes, needs, and ideas. Children are gently guided to realize the effects of their actions upon one another. They are taught to be respectful of one another and are encouraged to seek out solutions to problems with each other.
We do not use corporal punishment of any kind nor do we use time-out procedures. Teachers use re directional approaches, role-modeling, and problem-solving discussions. Children will be gently removed from an area if they are being dangerous with their bodies and cannot stop themselves. The immediate goal and objective of the teacher is to help the child self-regulate and regain control, moving towards conflict-resolution.
