Having good conflict resolution skills is very important.  Sometimes, however, the most important skill to possess is timing. 

You are going to experience moments of conflict when it is impossible to resolve the problem – or not recommended at that exact moment. 

Can you name some situations where problem solving must be postponed or not even attempted?

Fun With Familiar Stories – Cut And Paste Nursery Rhymes

Think of some of your favorite Nursery Rhymes.  Pick out a part of each of them that could be put together to form a new story.  (Your new story doesn’t have to rhyme.)

Here’s an example:

Three blind mice
Went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle
Wee, wee, wee all the way home!

Did you recognize Three Blind Mice, Jack and Jill, Hey! Diddle, Diddle, and This Little Piggy?

This little piggy...

How many nursery rhymes can you recite?
