    To deal with conflict, we need to know what things make us feel upset. If we know the different things that ‘bug’ us, we are more likely to be able to communicate our feelings and handle conflict in more appropriate ways.

    • Have your child draw and cut out the shapes of a lady bug and colour them in.
    • Cut out 4-5 spots and glue or tape the top portion of the spot to the lady bug so that you can flip up the spot.
    • Under each spot have them write the answer to the following statement: It bugs me when...

    As a family, have everyone share their "what bugs me bug". Discuss as a group some healthy ways to manage conflict.

    • Collected sticks
    • Ribbon
    • String
    • Paper
    • Makers or crayons
    • Glue
    • Scissors

    A good leader knows it is important to apologize. Some apologies can be a simple "I'm sorry", while others need extra work. It's important to recognize when you are wrong and when you need to apologize.

    • Next time you go for a walk, have your child collect a handful of sticks that look interesting and/or would look nice all bunched together.
    • Cut the sticks so they’re all the same length and tie them together with a nice ribbon.
    • You can decorate the sticks by making paper ornaments or dipping some sticks in paint and letting them dry.
    • Next time your child needs to apologize to someone, have them write an apology note, attach it to the bouquet and give it to the person they are apologizing to.

    Review Questions:

    Ask your chld:

    • When you're in conflict, what are your biggest feelings? How can the problem-solving wheel help you with those feelings? (Feel)
    • Do you think it’s important to stay calm if you’re in a conflict situation? Why or why not? (Think)
    • When would you ask for help from an adult if you’re in a conflict? (Act)
