The only sensible andintelligent way of resolving differences in today's world is through dialoguein a spirit of compromise and reconciliation. Dialogue, through which we learnto listen to other points of view, is the way to build greater trust andtransparency, and is the foundation of lasting friendship. Everyone from smallchildren up to political leaders have to understand that violence and conflictare counterproductive, that they are not a realistic way to solve our problems .. .
"Trouble at the WateringHole" makes a valuable contribution to such educational efforts by imagininghow animals deal with trouble round the watering hole. It is a vivid scene thatchildren will easily understand. I congratulate the authors for their keenappreciation of the importance of finding ways to educate children so they growup learning not to lash out at the first sign of conflict, but to approachproblems more reasonably. Genuine peace and reconciliation, whether in relationto ourselves or in relation to others, comes about through taking anunderstanding, respectful and non-violent approach to the challenges we face.

Everywherewe turn, it seems that youth are being exposed to the glorification of insultand violence, whether on social media or television, at the cinema or thetoy-store lined with plastic guns and action figures. While it is useful forkids to learn about the complexity of human nature, there's a clear anddesperate need for resources to educate children in peaceful methods ofconflict resolution. This is why I was thrilled to read Trouble at the WateringHole, a charming children's book by conflict resolution experts Gregg Relyeaand Joshua Weiss. Through a simple story, the book embeds key skills childrencan use to resolve everyday conflicts.

It's apowerful message to convey to children - that they can end disputes by talking,that they can themselves ask the right questions and find the right answers,and that they can retain friendships. In a society where conflict is on therise and is increasingly disabling, imparting and imbibing this message is asign of hope.
