Disagreements may be inevitable, but when they get out of hand, they can lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and even physical fighting. Some young people are overcome by anger or frustration during a confrontation, while others will do anything to avoid one altogether.

Arguing looks at the reasons why communication breaks down during arguments and suggests effective ways for young people to manage verbal disputes before they escalate into full-scale conflicts.

  • Arguing 101 explains how arguments get started and how they can escalate
  • Letters to the “Conflict Counsellor” show you how to manage in difficult situations
  • Quizzes test your ability to steer clear of arguments
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and web sites at your fingertips
The Deal With It series helps young adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Author Elaine Slavens is the former Consultant of Guidance and Social/Personal Skills for the Toronto District School Board and was previously Conflict Resolution Advisor for the Toronto Board of Education. This book reflects a deep and sympathetic understanding of young people and her experience with issues of conflict in school settings.

Attractively illustrated, this book is intended for ages 10+.
