Kelso has created a conflict management kit – just for families!
With activities catered specifically to at-home learning and a price point that won’t break the bank, this kit will help your family spend less time resolving conflict, and more time enjoying each others company!
This family kit will help keep your home conflict-free with a simple peacekeeping methodology known as Kelso’s Choice! Kelso’s Choice is particularly useful amongst siblings and is also very effective with children that have learning disabilities. Intended for children ages 5 and up, Kelso the Frog teaches kiddos how to solve small problems using his nine problem-solving “choices.”
What You’ll Learn:
First, your family will learn the difference between a small “kid-sized” problem that is safe for your child to try to resolve on their own, and a BIG problem that must always be taken to a trusted adult. Then, your family will learn nine distinct choices that your child can use to solve whatever small problem they encounter. The choices are illustrated in a wheel with Kelso the Frog clearly displaying each choice, so even if your child cannot yet read, they will still be able to understand each choice.
After learning these basic, foundational lessons, there are all sorts of games, resources, crafts, and activities that will help your child solidify their knowledge, and make using Kelso’s Choice fun, fun, FUN!
By using Kelso’s Choice your child will feel empowered to turn their small problems into positive experiences! And you can rest assured that they will know what types of problems are safe for them to solve, and which need to be handled by a trusted adult!
A little history…
Kelso’s Choice was created over 20 years ago by two elementary school counselors (also mothers!) who wanted a kid-friendly tool that youngsters could easily understand and use to solve problems on their own. This simple to understand, and fun tool has now been used worldwide, has won several awards (including the “Award for Top Homeschool Curriculum by Homeschool.com) and is recommended by parents, educators, doctors and more!
Keep the peace so you can enjoy every minute with your family!
ALL CHILDREN ARE SMART ENOUGH AND STRONG ENOUGH TO SOLVE THEIR SMALL PROBLEMS USING KELSO’S CHOICES!
