Deal with it without coming to blows
From the Series Lorimer Deal With It
Schoolyard fights used to be viewed as an inevitable part of growing up, especially for boys. But escalating violence in schools—including many incidents involving weapons—has made conflict resolution among young people a serious issue across the country.
All people experience feelings of anger and hostility, but as we mature we learn how to control these feelings and find positive outlets for them. Fighting was written for students when they need to understand and manage aggression—their own or someone else’s—in order to avoid getting into physical fights.
