Are you tired of constantly mediating conflicts between your students or children? Do you want to empower them to become independent problem solvers? Look no further than the Conflict Resolution Step-By-Step Mediation Guide for Kids!

This lap book is a classroom lifesaver, providing students with the tools they need to resolve conflicts on their own. Not only will students love how hands-on and fun this activity is, it helps them practice all the key conflict resolution skills for problem solving. Plus, it helps students regulate their emotions when triggered by frustrating social interactions.

Teachers can use it as a classroom management tool or for individual interventions with students who need additional support with conflict resolution skills.

How Our Step-By-Step Conflict Resolution Guide Works:

  1. Choose a coping tool to get calm first. The calming strategies include Hand Over Heart, Cocoa Breathing, Count to 20, Roller Coaster Breathing, Rocks & Socks, and Ocean Waves Breathing, all with strong visual supports and directions.
  2. Reflect on the size of the problem.  If it is a big problem, get an adult to help! But if it's something you can handle on your own....
  3. Choose a conflict resolution tool...and give it a try.  
  4. If using an I-Message, kids can use the hands-on template on the back of the lap book to formulate the statement.  
  5. After trying out the conflict resolution strategy, reflect on whether or not it helped.  If not, don't worry - the lap book also includes prompts to suggest trying another skill.
