Peacemaking behaviors and attitudes have roots in the family environment. Therefore, the most important place for peace education is at home. Safe, caring, and respectful home environments help promote healthy development of peaceful relationships and actions. Peacemaking skills are also developed when children and families understand relationships, react constructively to conflicts, and communicate their ideas and feelings to one another effectively.
This section contains resources, links, articles and ideas for being a peacemaker at home and activities that families, parents, and children can do together or individually to promote peacemaking at home, school, and in the community.
