Conflict Resolution

Jack was hit on the head repeatedly last week by a brand new boy in his preschool class. We talked about it a lot and I could tell he wasn't too traumatized. These things happen. Especially when you're four years old.

Well, the boy and Jack had a discussion about it today and lucky for me, his teacher was tuned in to the whole thing.

Boy: Jack, will you play with me and be my friend?
Jack: No, you hit me.
Boy: Will you play with me?
Jack: No, you really hurt me.
Boy: I'm sorry. Now will you be my friend?
Jack: Okay!

If only our world leaders had the diplomacy of these two!
