October: Conflict Resolution

Counselor Corner Conflict Resolution Wheel

This month’s character trait is Conflict Resolution.  We’re working on using strategies from the problem-solving wheel to solve kid-sized problems.

At Lincoln Park, we use the following steps for solving a problem:

  1. Stop
  2. Calm Down
    • Take 3 deep breaths
  3. Think of a solution
    • Is it fair?
    • Will it work?
  4. Try it out – did it work?
    • Yes: Yay!  Give yourself a pat on the back
    • No: Try another solution
