Too often we are uneasy when disagreeing with those around us. We may find it hard to be in conflict, and yet conflict is a very real and very necessary part of life. Without debate, disagreement, and conflict nothing great would ever be achieved. But conflict has some very strict grounds rules and we uncover them in this Mindwinder. After an enlivening discussion you will share the wisdom of Aesop in two fables that perfectly illustrate how to be persuasive rather than a bully, and why debate is essential for creative problem solving. Heads up: if the challenge proves easy for your kiddos, have them try it again with the mover blindfolded. The rest of the team can direct him/her non verbally!
