When using conflict mediation, children learn skills necessary to reach peaceful solutions. These skills include: communication, compromise, the ability to see how different aspects of a dispute are related, and the ability to consider their own perspective as well as that of another person. As children learn problem-solving procedures and words, they become increasingly capable of solving problems by themselves.
