The article focuses on strategies that can be adopted by parents to help children to solve social conflicts. Between the ages of 5 and 6, children become aware of new ways to manage conflict. They understand the power of their words and are willing to talk about a problem — even work things out — before it escalates to the point of asking an adult for help. As a parent, ones role is to help children stand back by encouraging them to see the big picture and the multidimensional nature of the conflict.
