Say What's Wrong and Make It Right by Karen Taylor-Bleiker

I was in my late thirties before I started to understand and believe the concept: "Feelings are not right or wrong, bad or good.  Feelings just are."

What an awakening this was for me.  It was the beginning of a great adventure.  The journey burst wide open when I returned to teaching kindergarten.  With my partner, Diana Carr, and our five-year olds, we created a communication program that freed and encouraged children to:

  • Recognize and say their feelings
  • Listen to each other
  • Make eye contact
  • Work together for win-win solutions to problems

Within three years, with support from the principals, teachers, aides, and parents, the majority of the students in our elementary school were resolving conflicts based on these principles.  Soon the program's success was seen in schools throughout our community.

Nearly forty years later, these grown up elementary students and their parents are still using Say What's Wrong and Make It Right to improve relationships and create peace in their world.

I wish to express some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this particular incident.

Living devoid of the solutions to the issues you have sorted out through your main site is a crucial case, as well as those which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn't encountered your web page.

It's possible to at this time relish my future. Thank you very much for this expert and sensible help. I won't be reluctant to refer the blog to anybody who ought to have direction on this subject.
