Ways to Teach Conflict Resolution Skills to Children

Here are some ways to teach conflict resolution skills to children.

Clear the Misunderstanding

It is very important to talk and clear the misunderstandings in the first place. It is not good to stop talking to someone because of the conflict. Problems can be solved by talking. There should be a proper room for communication. Misunderstandings can get worse if they are not cleared immediately.

Forgive and Forget

To forgive and forget is the most important thumb rule that parents must teach their children in order to end the conflict in few minutes. Teach them that it is very important to forgive and forget so that the conflict does not get prolonged. It does not harm to take a back seat if the conflicts are happening due to silly reasons.

Take the Conflicts Positively

Sometimes conflicts happen for no reason. So, it is necessary to take them positively by learning from them and making sure that such mistakes do not happen again. Taking life positively can bring about a lot of positive changes in life.

Have an Open Mind and Heart

It is very important to have an open mind and heart. Teach your child not to get angry if anyone says something negative. It is necessary to accept people as they are with open mind and heart. People are not going to change and as such it is necessary to accept them as they are without hurting their individuality.

Talk Calmly and Softly

Talking calmly and softly without getting agitated is necessary to end the conflict within few minutes. Even if the person with whom the conflict that is going on is not accepting his or her mistake it is necessary to maintain the cool. Teach your child, that maintaining the calm gives an opportunity to a person to realise his or her mistake.

Be Understanding

It is very important to be understanding and caring of others in order to avoid the conflict and letting it get prolonged. Silly mistakes happen and no one does them purposefully. Teach your child that it is not good to get agitated at someone who is suffering from some problem.

Act Within the Limits

It is necessary to act within the limits in order to ignore and resolve conflict as early as possible. Teach your children that even if conflicts take place, one should not cross his or her limits. When conflicts arise teach your children that they should act within the limits. They should not talk anyone with disrespect and hurt others.

Improve Focus on Self

It is necessary to improve the focus on self and forget what happened in past to end the conflict. Teach your children that if they are in conflict with others, they should never treat them disrespectfully. They should maintain the focus on self without paying attention at what people are saying by accepting them with open arms. They should learn one thing that nothing happens if anyone says anything, one should never stop and keep moving.

Always Do What is Right

Teach children that conflicts can get worse if they listen to what people are saying and act accordingly. They should never get into wrong things in order to teach lesson to others. It is necessary to always treat every with empathy. Teach them that in case if they are facing any problem, they must get solution from their parents instead of listening to what others are saying.  

Follow Values

When conflicts arise, it is always necessary to teach children to stick to good values instead of getting angry. Teach them that anger is their worst enemy. If you notice that your child is getting agitated for small reasons, you must teach him or her some anger management techniques.

Avoid Looking at Others Negatively

It is very important to teach children to avoid looking at others from negative perspective. Sometimes some genuine people may point out some negative things for the good only. So, children must not think that people are bad. They must think that we are looking at them from negative perspective.
In order to teach conflict resolution skills to children it is necessary to teach children to always think positive, talk positive and take things positively. When children will start adopting a positive approach in life, conflicts will never arise and even if they arise, they will disappear within a few seconds.
