great article!
I strongly believe that we need to talk with kids about these topics (violence, sex, difficult conversations). Additionally, I think that conflict resolution skills should be taught in schools as soon as possible. Buenos Aires, Argentina

conflict resolution
What a great article. I think conflict resolution should be a part of every school curiculum nationwide and taught in schools as early as kindergarten. The earlier kids are exposed the less violence will occur.

Teaching Youth Conflict Resolution
Dear Ms. Asherman: Thank you for your wonderful article. I will be the recipient of a statewide PTA Development Award, in UT, this coming weekend (5/12/01). We are completing Phase 1 of a pilot program to teach K-6 youth conflict resolution skills at a local elementary school. We will share Phase 1 of the pilot program called "On the MARC" at a resource booth during the PTA statewide convention. I have printed up a copy of your article to use as a resource at the booth. I'll try to let you know how it all goes! Sincerely, Deborah Callister

Promoting mediation
Dear Jeanne Asherman, Such a great article, I wish I'd written it! I want to learn about mediation and get Americans using it from kindergarten day one throughout life. I thought writing articles like yours would help. I see you're ahead of me. What else can one do?
