Item description for The Young Peacemaker Book Set by Corlette Sande...
Overview The Young Peacemaker is divided into three parts: Understanding Conflict, Responding to Conflict, and Preventing Conflict. The three parts cover twelve key principles such as ?Conflict is a Slippery Slope,? ?Choices Have Consequences,? ?Conflict is an Opportunity,? and ?Forgiveness is a Choice.? Each lesson explores one of the twelve key principles, and each student workbook corresponds to one of the twelve key principles. For example, the lesson called ?Conflict is a Slippery Slope,? examines the various responses we have to conflict. The top of the slippery slope is the proper response of ?working it out.? If you slide down the slippery slope to the right you enter the danger zone of the ?attack? response and if you slide down the slope to the left you enter the danger zone of the ?escape? response. Both responses to the left or right are wrong and staying on top of the slippery slope is right. A simple diagram that children will remember illustrates the concept of the slippery slope. The student booklet covers the same theme with a story done in comic book style. By the time you have taught all twelve lessons, children will gain wonderful Biblical insight into resolving conflict.
Community Description Wouldn't it be great to teach children interpersonal skills like we teach them carrying and borrowing in math? We teach children math skills slowly and over time, one concept building upon another until they are prepared to balance their checkbook when they are adults. The Scripture tells us to teach our children Biblical truth in the same way, line upon line, day after day.
The Young Peacemaker approaches the subject of resolving personal conflicts in this way; it teaches children the basics of solving people problems. Our children are the future church, yet we recognize that because of our sinful nature our children will have conflicts with other believers that affect the life of the church. It is important for children to understand how to resolve conflict in Biblical ways. We cannot make our children into peacemakers (that is the work of the Spirit of God), but we can give them the necessary skills to resolve conflicts in their adult lives. Holding out for children the high standard of Scripture concerning relationships will point our children to their need for Christ. Therefore, it is always important to teach what is right.

Young Peacemaker Mar 8, 2010
This curriculum is EXCELLENT. I am using it with elementary age children at church but the concepts taught are good for all ages. The material is biblically sound and presented in an interesting way. I highly recommend it.
Not actually 13 piece set Nov 28, 2007
The workbooks themselves look fine. I gave this 1 star because it is NOT a 13-piece set. You do not get "The Peacemaker" with it. this site tried 3 different times to make my order right and finally gave up. Don't order this expecting a 13 piece set.
Young Peacemakers will triumph on to victory Oct 2, 2007
The Young Peacemaker Book and 12 Student Activity Booklets Set is a wonderful resource to use with all ages of children and adults. After just one class was presented to our mixed aged upper elem. group, the children quickly remembered many of the different approaches to dealing with conflict and even began to integrate some of the techniques taught. However you will need the skills taught in these books to deal peacefully and gracefully with this site and their fulfillment centers in order to procure a complete set of Student Activity books (#1- #12). You may need to contact Customer Service several times however the wait is worth it if you aren't in a hurry. If you need them quicker, consider purchasing them elsewhere.
Great material! Mar 8, 2007
I look forward to using this with my 8 and 11 year olds.
I'm a Teacher and I say this stuff is good! Feb 26, 2007
This is my tenth year teaching and my third year using The Young Peacemaker materials. A month ago, the teachers in the grade after mine agreed that this material makes such a difference that they recommended that every student be required to study it. I am also a trained Christian conciliator. From my experience, if we can get these principles into young people, they will be much more effective problem solvers and people winners as adults. ~ Scott Hayden BA El. Ed.; MS in Teaching
