There are conflicts around us, aren`t there? We encounter disagreements with strangers, family members, our children and especially with our spouse. Marriage is certainly not immune to conflict. Below is a list of ways to deal with disagreements in a more pious way if you strive to be “at peace” with one another. Let students form small groups with a parenting assistant or an older student for each group. Give each group the Student Activity Sheet: How did they sort it? Students decide whether each scenario is a starfish, jellyfish, or thorn ray method to clear up a disagreement, and then find an alternative starfish method to deal with that disagreement. A joint meeting also has its advantages. Giving everyone the opportunity to do controlled ventilation at a joint meeting can purify the air between them. You should inquire with both of you before proposing this approach, as you want to be sure that they can participate in such a meeting without losing sight of it, which makes the solution even more difficult. And be sure to set some basic rules – each one will have a turn, for example no interruptions – before you start and be ready to strictly control the session and even cancel it if you can`t control it, otherwise it can get brutal. Inform all parties of the disagreement you expect from them – and you know they will do their job with excellence and maturity. Make it clear that you will monitor the situation and take further action if they are unable to resolve their differences.

Present students with examples of conflict or book problems (for example. B Wombat Stew, Horton Hears a Who!, The Very Cranky Bear, Monster Chef) or the media. As a leadership coach, I spend a lot of time working with my clients to help them manage communication disorders – and really, a lot of disagreements come down to a breakdown in communication. In a previous blog post, I talked about the importance of seeing each other`s point of view when a technical concept is explained. The same principle applies to differences of opinion. The more you understand a person`s position, the more you can understand their concerns – and the more you can resolve the disagreement. Before responding with your own position, you should first paraphrase the other person`s position and concerns. This sends a strong message. Most importantly, you first insist on the things in which you agree with the other person. Often, our differences stem from our worldviews on an outcome, so it`s important to be on the same side with a teammate on the ultimate goals you`re arguing about. .
