    Okay - I got into this a little bit. The school I came from made conflict resolution their goal for the year. They trained fourth and fifth graders to be conflict managers (mediators) It worked out great for the little kids because all their petty recess issues could be solved on the playground by an older trained student and by the time they got back into class they were ready to learn- not tattle.

    But - you could train your own class mediators. That way if someone comes to you to tattle you could say - that sounds like you need to go to mediation. Which of course will take time and I think it should happen during their recess.

    I went to google and did a search looking for the words we used. We scaled them down so they were understandable to the little guys. I couldn't find it - but found this site. Looks really neat. You could do your own lessons and hopefully stop the whole thing in its tracks. Know what I mean? Be proactive.


    Here it is. Hope this helps.
