Trouble at the Watering Hole
The Adventures of Emo and Chickie169
The forest animals have a problem-the watering hole isn't big enough. They have all the usual reasons for getting more water-who is biggest, who is strongest, and who is cleverest. But the animals are getting nowhere. Worse yet, they are fighting with each other, which won't solve anything.In Trouble at the Watering Hole, Emo, a baby bear cub, and his best friend, a colorful bird named "Chickie," know there must be a way to stop the fighting. Together with the forest animals, Emo and Chickie explore ways to work things out that are positive and constructive. They learn skills together and use them to work through the problem-skills that can be used to resolve everyday problems without resorting to fighting. Skills that everyone can learn.Trouble at the Watering Hole is a breakthrough book that focuses on the skills of conflict resolution. The "how" of working things out. This fun and educational book builds a foundation for kids to learn ways to constructively resolve problems and to build strong skills that can be used to resolve conflict for the rest of their lives.To further help teach kids conflict resolution skills, search for the companion book Parent/Teacher Manual for TROUBLE AT THE WATERING HOLE and purchase both books together."It would be a better world if every child had the chance to learn early in life about ways to resolve conflict through cooperation. In this wonderfully simple and instructive tale for children, accompanied by a practical teacher's guide packed with tips and exercises, Gregg Relyea and Josh Weiss make this dream possible."-From William Ury: Co-author of Getting to Yes and author of The Third Side

From His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Dharamsala, India
the only sensible and intelligent way of resolving differences in today’s world is through dialogue in a spirit of compromise and reconciliation. dialogue, through which we learn to listen to other points of view, is the way to build greater trust and transparency, and is the foundation of lasting friendship. everyone from small children up to political leaders have to understand that violence and conflict are counterproductive, that they are not a realistic way to solve our problems . . .
“trouble at the watering hole” makes a valuable contribution to such educational efforts by imagining how animals deal with trouble round the watering hole. it is a vivid scene that children will easily understand. i congratulate the authors for their keen appreciation of the importance of finding ways to educate children so they grow up learning not to lash out at the first sign of conflict, but to approach problems more reasonably. genuine peace and reconciliation, whether in relation to ourselves or in relation to others, comes about through taking an understanding, respectful and non-violent approach to the challenges we face.
From Niranjan Bhatt: President, Association of Indian Mediators (2000-2016) and Founder and Managing Trustee of AMLEAD (Institute for Arbitration, Mediation and Legal Education and Development), Gujarat, India
“trouble at the watering hole” is a landmark contribution to the field of conflict resolution. a difficult subject has been brilliantly reduced to first principles for young readers. it will lead the younger generation to a more peaceful society. “trouble” also can be incorporated at an advanced level in train-the-trainers programs. the parent-teacher manual is a superb way of elaborating the practical skills used in conflict resolution.
From Sriram Panchu: Founder, Indian Centre for Mediation and Dispute Resolution, Chennai, India
it's a powerful message to convey to children - that they can end disputes by talking, that they can themselves ask the right questions and find the right answers, and that they can retain friendships. in a society where conflict is on the rise and is increasingly disabling, imparting and imbibing this message is a sign of hope.
From Kenneth Cloke: Author of Mediating Dangerously: The Frontiers of Conflict Resolution
conflicts begin at birth, and so should our skills in collaborative negotiation and conflict resolution. but how do we teach children diverse, age-appropriate ways of responding to conflict without either talking down to them or expecting them to act like professional mediators? this highly useful approach combines simple storytelling with a well-informed guide for teachers and parents covering skills for all ages, allowin...
