[DAY 4] Five steps to peaceful conflict resolution.
Welcome to DAY 4! Today, I want to talk about peace.
Now that you've learned the importance of reassessing your interpretations of behavior and taking control of your triggers, you're ready to start interacting in new ways.
I want to share with you a step-by-step path to peace.
Your language, attitude, and tone ALL affect your child's ability to meet your expectations. Learning to change the way you speak can take time and practice.
Sometimes, you won't know WHAT to say. It's okay to be silent. Being respectful is more important than saying the "right" thing.
Practicing mindfulness will allow your body to relax and your mind to open up to the words and creative solutions that already exist within you.

This 5-step process will give you a plan of action for addressing the root cause of negative behavior without being permissive.
