When a child is in conflict, she rarely sees the perspective
or point of view of the other child. Conflicts generally turn
into a contest around who is right and who is wrong.
Teaching youth to see conflicts from a different point of
view enables them to appreciate the perceptions of others.
It also allows them to realize that no one is right or wrong
when in conflict. The goal is for the child to explain her
point of view and listen to that of the other child. Ultimately,
you want both children in conflict to understand how it might
feel to be in each other's shoes.
