Seeing through another’s eyes

Activity Type Setting Cost Time
No Cost
About 30 minutes


In the aftermath of a conflict with a peer or family member, when passions have cooled, have your child tell the story of the conflict from the other person’s point of view. This activity can be both interactive and reflective. Start by having your child tell you the story. Coach him or her to be fair to the other person, and to really try to “get into the head” of that person. After discussion, as an optional follow-up, have your child write the story.
