ReadBringing Out the Champion.”

Pray the second prayer in “Pray a Way: Agreeable or Quarrelsome?

ReadA Lovely Nest” and relate how learning to get along with each other makes for a happier atmosphere, whether at home or school.

Memorize one or more of the three scriptures found in this lesson plan:

  • “Let us pursue what makes for peace” (Romans 14:19 ESV).
  •  “Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4 NKJV).
  • “Eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3 ESV).

0–5 Lesson Plan: Avoiding and Resolving Arguments

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 20-minute 0–5 lesson plan on resolving conflicts.

*

WatchArguments Goodbye.”

ReadFix a Problem … with Love and Forgiveness.”

Ask your children if there are times or situations where they find it difficult to get along with others. Discuss the actions the children can take to fix a problem with love and forgiveness, versus arguing.

Write out Proverbs 15:1, Colossians 3:13, or Ephesians 4:32 on a piece of cardstock and place it somewhere the children will be able to see it throughout the day.

ReadIn a Robin’s Nest.”

Ask your children to retell the story of “In a Robin’s Nest,” but this time with the nestlings working out their differences with love rather than bickering.
