Schools hold the key

Posted in Uncategorized on 02.02.11 by Merlyn

iI was listening to a workshop yesterday that was talking about Solicitors and the law being the main gate keepers of conflict resolution. While I think that is true up to a point I think that it is actually the schools and teachers. It is through those years that we learn what conflict is and how to resolve it. By the time we come out of school a lot of our ideas are already formed. We want to fight to win instead of finding a win/win solution.
There are so many school programmes now which should mean that the next generation of children will be better at sorting out their disputes without going to the courts.

the Isolation of bullying

Posted in Uncategorized on 02.02.11 by Merlyn

It is important to remember that when someone is being bullied they feel increasingly isolated. The first thing that we need to do is to listen to how they feel and support them. We might have views about what should be done but the most important thing we can do is to stop the person feeling alone.

Imperfect Parents

Posted in Uncategorized on 02.02.11 by Merlyn

Our children are very lucky that we are not perfect. Imagine what it would be like for them when they finally left home! They would go out into the world and expect everyone to understand them and to behave impeccably towards them. Instead they get the chance to live in a real family with parents who love them but make mistakes too. They get the chance to make mistakes with others that do the same, they learn how to listen to others (despite their own views), negotiate differences and most important of all…………..to apologise and to forgive. Being imperfect is one of the best things we do for our kids.
