Conflict Resolution in Japanese Social Interactions.
Killen, Melanie; Sueyoshi, Lina
Early Education and Development, v6 n4 p317-34 Oct 1995
Studied Japanese preschool children's conflict resolution and how they and their mothers evaluate teachers' conflict resolution methods. Found that preschoolers' conflicts stemmed from wide range of issues, including concerns about justice, rights, and fairness. Preschoolers used negotiation more than retribution or appeals to teachers, which teachers attribute to their own nonintervention strategy that encourages children to solve conflicts themselves. (TM)
