Young Peacemaker SET (Manual w Activity CD)
Includes The Young Peacemaker and student activity book (CD format).
Recommended by Tedd Tripp, the author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart, this book was written to bring the wonderful concepts of The Peacemaker, by Ken Sande, to young children. Everyone experiences conflict, and teaching children how to be peacemakers can really help their relationships with parents, siblings, and friends. This manual was written to parents and teachers to use with children. It is divided into three main units - Understanding Conflicts, Responding to Conflict, and Preventing Conflict. Each of these units contains four different chapters/lessons. To give you an idea of the content, here are a few of the chapter titles: What Causes Conflict?, Choices Have Consequences, Conflict is an Opportunity, The Freedom of Forgiveness, Altering Choices, and Think Before You Speak. The lessons are divided into six sections. The first section sets the stage, including an introduction to the lesson, a review of the previous concepts learned, discussion questions, and short story illustrating the main principles of the lesson. The lesson follows, introducing the biblical principles of peacemaking and how they can be used to resolve conflict and make peace. The remaining sections give a closing prayer, activities to assign as desired (found in the Student Activity Book, only available in the set), a list of relevant Bible passages to reinforce the lesson, and a final summary highlighting the key principle and main points of the lesson as well as a Bible memory verse. This manual was designed to be covered in twelve weeks, but the program is very flexible and can adapt to different time frames. This is a wonderful manual to be used in Christian or home schools, Sunday schools, or family devotions. 199 pgs. - Melissa
