The Young Peacemaker
Teaching Students to Respond to Conflict God’s Way
The Young Peacemaker is a large, lay-open manual which serves as a curriculum designed to help you teach your children or students to respond properly to conflict. Rather than allowing conflicts to escalate sinfully into major catastrophes in the family, this useful manual helps children learn to handle conflict biblically, addressing such questions as:
What is at the heart of conflict?
Is it possible to honor God in conflict?
How can I take responsibility for my contribution to a conflict?
How can I go and talk to someone if we are in a fight?
How can we be friends again if there’s a wall between us now?
