By Eric West on October 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read this book during my first year of teaching preschool. It's lengthy, and you've got to really read it-- if you browse, you'll miss key ideas. But oh, is it worth it.

If you find yourself watching John grab Alice's shovel, Alice come crying to you, you go over to John and you explaining to John that he can't just take things, and then taking the shovel and giving it to Alice, problem solved... yet somehow knowing that something isn't quite right, this is the book for you. It turns the children into the problem solvers with you as the mediator.

When you finish the book you will have a very clear idea of how you can go about implementing the ideas. When you start, the ground you are on might be a little bumpy, for you will have to gain student trust. Another teacher might even interrupt you and "take over," telling you "it isn't working." But from first hand experience, I can tell you that in a matter of weeks, when students realize that you are there to "help solve the problem" and not to punish, they will be much more receptive and start to solve problems on their own.

I liked this book because it tells you exactly what to do and walks you through scenarios again and again. For someone willing to learn, this book will teach.

This book is ideal for anyone who spends time with young children. Very easy to read with fantastic situational examples taken from real interactions. This is a highly recommended book. Examples can even be shared with young children to demonstrate how they can make good choices and solve their own situations.

I love this book. It serves as a wonderful guide to help children learn to solve conflict on their own instead of jumping in for them. It helps gives adults concrete ideas about how to guide children to problem solve vs. swooning in and fixing it for them.

Worth the purchase!

Betsy Evans' book is amazing. Written with clear, real-life examples of teachers mediating conflict with young children, it has been extremely helpful in my own teaching practice. I highly recommend it to any others in the field of early childhood education who would like to facilitate kindness in the classroom.
