Peace Flower

A strategy for youth to problem-solve themselves. Between two children, they pass a flower back and forth. The first child begins by saying, “I felt ________when this happened.” The child then passes the flower and the other child repeats back what they heard. “It sounds like you felt ________when I did _________.” Then an apology ensues or the conversation continues briefly to clear up miscommunications. Then one child enters the resolution process by saying, “Next time, let’s ____________” and ideally the other child says, “Great idea!” They both hold the flower and say “sorry” or “peace be with you”, etc…Keep the peace flower in a prominent location, i.e.: at the Peace Table.
