Often, we get emails saying only, “What is the choice wheel?” Or “Where can I get the choice wheel?” What customers are referring to is the Kelso’s Choice Conflict Management Wheel. It is one of the foundational tools of our system.
What exactly is a choice wheel? As the name suggests, it’s a simple wheel that presents children with choices. Nine, to be exact! The Kelso’s Choice Conflict Management Kit is a system for children in grades K-5 to become empowered to solve their own problems. First, the system helps you teach them the difference between a big problem and a little problem. After that, it gives them the tools to resolve conflict on their own. That’s where the choice wheel comes in!
Here it is:
The choices on the choice wheel are simple! Here are a few:
- Tell them to stop
- Walk Away
Children of all ages and abilities can easily remember Kelso’s Choices with this handy visual reference. Print it out, copy it, give it to kids to color. The sky is the limit!
