Conflict Corner

Driving to the mall this afternoon I was listening to an audio book. The narrator was talking about how boys on the playground can give each other bloody noses and then be best friends again the next day.

Isaiah: “Just like conflict corner!”

Me: “Conflict what?”

Isaiah: “Conflict Corner is a place in my P.E. class. If you get in an argument with someone you go there. There’s a piece of paper that tells you what to do.

1. Each person shares their side of the story.

2. Together you come up with a solution.

3. You shake hands.

4. Give each other a compliment.

5. Go back and play.

Me: “What was the solution the time you went to conflict corner?”

Isaiah: “I’m not very good at coming up with solutions. I just asked my friend if he wanted to go back and play again. I’m a sly fox mama…just like my daddy.”
