Help Children Gain Perspective

Sometimes, a bit of perspective is all that someone needs to overcome conflict in their life. The next time you see a young person you care about struggling with conflict, see if talking it out can help them gain perspective and come up with solutions. Ask them the following and see what comes up in conversation:

• Do you dislike the other person?
• Do you distrust him or her?
• Do you want to “win”?

Answering “Yes” to any of these questions may be a signal that they’re overreacting to personal issues.
