• Assertive Conflict Resolution


     When someone does something wrong to you:

    1. Look the student in the eye and politely tell the student how you feel.
    2. Tell the student how it affected you.   
    3. Tell the student what you want him/her to do.
    4. The student listens,and then apologizes
    5. Both of you say, “Let’s go play.”

    Assertive Conflict Resolution


    Here is an example of assertive conflict resolution: (In this case, Eva pushed Barry during a game.)


    Barry: (Looking Eva in the eye) “I feel sad.  I fell down and hurt my knee.  Please help me up.”

    Eva:  “I’m sorry.  I won’t do that again.”

    Barry and Eva:  “Let’s go play.”

    Saying, “Let’s go play” means that both of you agree that the conflict has been resolved.  Tell an adult if the conflict has not been resolved.
