Teacher Teacher: Problem Solving Without Bullying

By MaryJo Clark, MS ED


Second graders are taught a vocabulary of feelings, words, and colors. Active listening and congruent sending is the model followed. The main sentence taught is this:

I feel ________ when _______, and I wish to see ___________. Here is the example: I feel hurt when you call me names, and I want you to stop.

About the author:

The author has been interested in children’s behavior since beginning babysitting jobs, then continued through the elementary years as a teacher. Children’s behavior has been a strong interest and following that interest long years of study followed. As she moved up into Jr. High and High school one of her interests was to teach the same problem-solving sentence to the older students. They were appreciative for the skill of Active Listening and Congruent Sending of Messages. She used that program for her students’ ability to communicate clearly with friends, parents and teachers.

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.
