“You’re Not My Friend Anymore!” provides a close-up look at children’s challenging behaviors and effective adult responses to conflict situations. In a series of 21 scenarios based on actual teacher and parent interactions with young children, readers will find illustrated answers to common questions about responding to children’s conflicts. Each chapter explores a typical What if…? Question about children’s challenging behaviors. This question is answered by two sets of illustrated responses: one depicts a “typical” (or more traditional) adult response to the problem or conflict situation; the other details a “problem-solving” approach based on a six-step mediation process. Accompanying text explores the differences between the two approaches, common questions about children’s behaviors and responses, and recommended strategies for effective problem solving.
