How many times have you felt lost when presenting a conflict among your family members? Whether it's a fight between siblings, an anger between you and your child, or an abnormal emotional state in the child, that is, an internal conflict.
I would like to present you a way of facing these situations, which will make you feel safe and convinced that you are doing it in a fair, correct and conciliatory way.
It's about aphysical space andn our home, where to go when there is a conflict, fight or quarrel between two or more family members. You also go to this space alone, to take time to think, when you feel sad, frustrated, nervous, angry, overwhelmed or simply because you need tranquility and solitude. In short, forget your spirits back habitual.
TheMesa de la Paz technique, to regulate children's emotions, is a pedagogical resource for conflict resolution, focused from a "positive and constructive discipline" that is based onMontesori methodology.
The table of Peace serves for the child to learn and internalize all the emotions that can be felt, that learn to identify them in himself and in others.
- So that you know how to accept those emotions, express them in a respectful and adapted way.
- To encourage oral expression, negotiation, emotional intelligence, assertiveness and empathy.
- To promote your self-esteem, to learn social skills and develop interpersonal intelligence.
- We must place it in a space of the house community, not in the child's room.
- A low auxiliary table and a couple of chairs or similar will suffice as furniture or a small rug with a couple of cushions. It depends on the space we have and the characteristics of our home.
- A box or basket where we can introduce the following objects and resources, and that we could call "Box seeks emotions":
1- An hourglass, a battery-powered candle, a stress ball, a music box, a bell, a rain stick, a string of beads, a mirror, a notebook and colored pencils, an album with a selection of family photos (emotional, funny, of important moments, etc.)
2- Get a children's book that talks about emotions, you can find a great variety, choose the one you like the most.
3- Make a "Indicator of emotions"These are images of faces with different emotions, it can be in the form of a clock or a notebook.
- To learn how to use this space correctly we will start with a "role-play", which consists of simulate a conflict. The whole family will participate, each one will adopt a different role and then the roles will be changed. For example, a fight between brothers.
- The rules that will reign in this space are explained: do not hit, do not interrupt, do not yell, do not mock, do not insult, respect and do not offend.
- "I" instead of "You". Which translates to: "I have felt this way", instead of, "You have made me feel this way."
- People have to go to the place of voluntary way, wanting and intending to resolve the conflict.
- It will begin by explaining how I feel about what has happened, respecting the turn, we will play the campaign when we finish talking and thus indicate to the other his turn.
- You can also start drawing or writing how I feel and giving it to the other to see or read. It is used especially when we do not dare to tell something or we are not able to verbalize it.
- If it is an internal conflict. We will go to this space alone, to look for answers what happens to us, like Escape route to our emotions. To calm down we can take the rain stick, listen to the melody of the music box, the anti-stress ball. Yes, we are sad look at the photo album. If we do not know well how we feel, look at the book of emotions and put a face to our feelings with the "clock of emotions".
- Never compel make peace, or the wall between them will get bigger.
- When they fight, do not separate them, do not resort to blocking, favors the approach, is the way that they learn to resolve conflicts.
- Do not act as a judge, but as moderator. This resource leads the children to have a certain sense of injustice and anger towards their brother, which worsens the situation. It also leads to the need to always turn to the adult to defend them and resolve the conflict.
