Converting Conflicts in Preschool
This book offers a new approach for handling conflicts between children and provides effective solutions for preschool teachers. It describes a simple technique that converts children's conflicts to positive feelings, rather than having conflicts result in blame and shame. By giving teachers the tools they need to become transformers of classroom disputes, rather than referees or disciplinarians, they understand that conflict is a necessary learning opportunity and helps teach children to show empathy toward one another, rather than ill will. Each chapter of these interpersonal encounters includes recent child development research that sets the stage for the new conversion technique. This book is an essential classroom resource.
