Sometimes we might think communication is easy; just express our thoughts or listen to someone else’s words. Yes, it can be as simple as that. But what gets difficult is communicating our wants, thoughts and especially our feelings in an effective way without engaging in an argument. Children practice social relationships by way of communicating on a daily basis in their social and familial environments. They can sometimes face challenges with friendships, expressing their needs to teachers, or even sharing about their day at home with family members. What Debra will offer during her presentation are examples of effective communication skills for children and the adults working with their children. In addition, conflict resolution requires good communication and management of one’s escalating feelings. Debra will also talk about how kids can face their friends with positive confrontation and use their conflict resolution skills to maintain or mend their relationships with confidence. She looks forward to meeting with the families of Franklin Elementary School to review these skills and engage in an active discussion about their experiences related to communication and conflict resolution.
