Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 20-minute 0–5 lesson plan on resolving conflicts.
Watch “Arguments Goodbye.”
Read “Fix 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.
Read “In 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.
