Conflicts do not start with people hitting or yelling at each other. They always start as a misunderstanding or disagreement. Unfortunately, conflicts can escalate very quickly. Fortunately, they do not have to escalate into a fight. This poster helps kids understand how conflicts can escalate from disagreements to arguments to fights. It also shows how they can de-escalate conflicts before they turn into fights. The goal is to help students understand how their OWN behavior can make conflicts better or worse.
