Before Push Comes to Shove: Building Conflict Resolution Skills with Children
ReviewI highly recommend Best Day of the Week and Before Push Comes to Shove as powerful resources for early childhood and primary educators. I especially appreciate the authors integration of principles from anti-bias education and the user-friendly yet profound explanations, guidelines, and examples. -- Louise Derman-Sparks, Author of Anti-Bias CurriculumUsing the story, Best Day of the Week as a tool, this conflict resolution curriculum is effective in guiding young children to learn healthy, constructive responses to conflict. The clear and practical information offered will enable teachers and parents to adapt these lessons to their own settings. I highly recommend this book to everyone committed to raising nonviolent children. -- Alvin F. Poussaint, MD, Harvard Medical SchoolIn a violent society where there are so few models for positive conflict resolution, teachers can help children learn the skills that they will need to communicate, negotiate, and resolve their conflicts with others. By using the childrens book Best Day of the Week as a starting point, Before Push Comes to Shove shows how teachers of young children can begin to build conflict resolution skills with young children in ways that are meaningful to them and embedded in their everyday school experiences. Nine comprehensive chapters address topics ranging from the basis of conflict resolution education to how to develop a specific curriculum. The last chapter gives helpful resource information.From the PublisherCarlsson-Paige and Levin insist that part of the national solution to these recent school violence tragedies must be teaching younger children the conflict resolution skills they need for their livesskills like managing their anger and expressing strong feelings. By the time a child is eight years old, it becomes even harder to teach the nonviolent approaches they need for their emotions.
