Preventing Violence by Promoting the Development of Competent Conflict Resolution Skills: Exploring Roles and Responsibilities.
Chen, Dora W.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v30 n4 p203-08 Sum 2003
Explores the relationship between conflict and violence by reviewing literature about young children's peer conflict, focusing on questions about the nature of peer conflict and teachers' responses. Concludes that peer conflicts do not necessarily lead to violence, but when children are unable to resolve their own conflict and are not supported in resolution efforts, violence is likely to result. Urges teachers to provide assistance as needed in skill development. (Author/KB)
