Bullying, name-calling, playground squabbles: some adults may think those trivial problems but how children deal with them is the learning material that will form their attitudes towards conflict in later life. Surely children ought to learn how to resolve these playground conflicts themselves, and learn lessons in democracy and empathy that can change the political culture of their country in later years. Jerry Tyrrell helped to develop the process of peer mediation in primary schools in Northern Ireland over many years and recognised that the creativity, patience and integrity children demonstrate in resolving their conflicts can be the basis for a sense of empathy and mutual understanding in their adult life.  19 Dec 2013, 05:43 Ellis Brooks Cresst
