Conflict is an opposition of needs, values and interests. A conflict is a struggle between people. The struggle may be physical, or between conflicting ideas.

Psychologists and sociologists say that there are five basic ways of solving conflict:

And every person decides himself what way to choose, if he really wants to resolve conflicts.

Questions for discussing are on the screen. Let’s read them first.

Give an example of your conflict, your own experience – with your classmates, friends or parents. Рассказы учащихся о себе.

Is a peaceful resolution important? Explain why?

  1. Look at the screen. These sayings maybe will be able to help you to avoid or to resolve conflicts. I’ll give you these cards with some interesting sayings. Read, translate them paying attention to the underlined words. (карточки)

According to the results of the questionnaire, a lot of girls sometimes have conflicts. It is normal, because there are no teenagers living without conflicts. About 35% often have conflicts, and only 12% of girls constantly have conflicts. In my opinion these results are connected with problems at school, in a family and between friends.

Misunderstanding is the main cause of conflicts in girls’ life, but also 27% of girls have conflicts because they have a bad mood today.

About 14% think that lie is important cause of their conflicts, and they


The results of the questionnaire

are right. Many of my friends and relatives hate when somebody lies. And only 3% of girls say that rivalry and envy are common causes of our conflicts.

27% of girls often have conflicts with their parents and relatives. About 23% have conflicts with friends, because girls usually argue about fashion, films, music, boys and their friendship. 17% of girls have conflicts with their boyfriends. Girls are very nervous, tender and delicate, therefore they need support, attention and love. 13% also have conflicts with teachers, because girls do not agree and are upset about their marks at school. 10% of girls have conflicts with close friends; they have faith in best friends and want to know everything about them.

About 56% of girls make a compromise if they want to resolve conflict. 22% undertake nothing in conflict situation. I think it is not good, when you don’t control situation. 11% of girls take the blame on their selves. Only 7% compel somebody to be sorry to them, it is bad trait of character. These girls are very artful, impudent and haughty. And 4% of girls (!) will arrange a fight if they want resolve their conflicts. Why not?! I can’t denounce their actions. May be they are very sporty and brave girls.

About 54% of girls think that it is possible to avoid conflicts in most cases. It is very positive mood and this is praiseworthy. 27% say that it sometimes is possible to avoid conflicts. 12% of girls think that it seldom is possible. And about 7% of girls say that it is not possible toavoid conflicts. They are very pessimistic, because in my opinion everybody can avoid some things. You need only want to change your life to the best.

Boys are calmer than girls. About 40% of boys seldom have conflicts. It is good, because these students spare their nerves. 27% sometimes have conflicts. But 20% of boys often have conflicts and 13% constantly have conflicts. I think these statistics are unwell. It means that teenagers are very irritable and high-strung. It is connected with modern mode of life for children and juveniles.

Misunderstanding is also the main cause of conflicts in boys’ life. 20% of boys say that the most common cause of their conflicts is bad mood. About 17% think the main causes of conflicts are lie and rivalry. Boys trust their friends and hate liars. Boys complete with peers in sport, studying, minds, etc. 12% of boys think that envy is important cause of their conflicts, because envy is terrible feeling. If someone envies you, you will feel unwell, it’s not great.

26% of boys often have conflicts with friends and parents or relatives. These conflicts are connected with different interests and problems of generations. About 16% of boys have conflicts with their classmates, because almost each boy wants to be a leader in his class. 10% have conflicts with girlfriends and teachers. It means that some boys are selfish and contentious. 6% of boys often have conflicts with everyone, in my opinion they are very aggressive and impertinent. One day they will become adults and will understand that it is necessary to avoid conflicts in our life.

Half of boys exactly make a compromise if they want to resolve conflicts. It is good attitude. 25% take the blame on themselves in this situation. They act in a masculine way. But 17% of boys also compel somebody to be sorry to them. Maybe, there are some boys in our school, who think just only about themselves. They say that they are always right in everything. Boys are more peaceful than our girls; nobody of boys arranges a fight in conflict situation. It means that they can resolve conflicts in a peaceful way.

About 53% of boys think that it is possible to avoid conflicts sometimes. 33% say that it is possible in most cases. 7% of boys think that it always is possible to avoid conflicts. And nobody of boys says that it is not possible. I think that it is very positive. These boys are cheerful and tactful than some girls in our school, who think that it is not possible to avoid conflicts.

Conclusions. What is conflict? It is the expression of disagreement over something important to both (or all) sides of a dispute. The first important thing to grasp is that it is entirely dependent on the people involved. It depends on their having a particular point of view, which may or may not have independent facts and evidence to support it, and on how they behave when they encounter an opposing point of view. Young people have not only lack experience, but also often have little foresight. Parents should teach their teens to think like chess players: before they make a move, they should try to anticipate the consequences.

What will happen to me if I make this next decision or choice?» At the same time, parents should be asking themselves «What can I do in this situation to help my teen be more responsible?»

Many teenagers think that school spoils our childhood and takes a lot of time. But they make a very big mistake. In future people understand that the school time was the best in their lives, but it can’t return. And we also understand it, because after two years we’ll finish school, and everyone will have its own future. Sometimes I want to become an adult, because I want to see my future, but at the same time I want to be always little, to be always with my friends and parents, and never lose them, but I know – unfortunately it is impossible.

We think we should learn to be tolerant and try to understand each other and resolve conflicts in a peaceful way.
