How children can sort out their own difficulties
Children should be encouraged to take responsibility for sorting out their own conflicts. This means that adults must take responsibility for teaching them and modelling strategies for doing this, and for seeing that children carry them out and reach a successful conclusion. Children should be encouraged to be assertive, to express their feelings and to resolve conflict without resorting to violence, swearing or abuse.

The others listen with no interruptions.
They are encouraged to maintain eye-contact.
Each child has a turn to say:
No-one is allowed to interrupt or argue.
They go on taking turns until everyone has finished.
The adult is there as referee, not as part of the discussion. S/he makes sure that the turns are taken, that children stick to the three steps, that they listen to each other and maintain eye-contact. If the children cannot resolve the conflict after a reasonable time, then the adult can decide to make a judgement and take appropriate action.
