The Mismatch of Conflict Styles: How to Handle It - Doing Life Together

Now the issue is, does your style match with those with whom you are intimate? What happens when there is a mismatch of styles, e.g., you avoid and the other person reacts? Conflict can get stuck!

If you avoid and you are with a reactor, you develop the classic pursue-distance pattern in a relationship. The reactor needs to be aware of how uncomfortable this if for the avoider and make efforts to calmly present their emotions and not overwhelm the avoider.

If you are a reactor with a negotiator, agree that emotion is important, but needs to be controlled. Amazon. Amazon.

Like mud, not fireworks - Mem Fox

What has hairdressing to do with literacy? What has literacy to do with ironing? Can a three year old begin to learn to read in fifteen minutes? Do the Beatles have a message for teachers of reading? When, as teachers of literacy, we stand at the crossroads of conflicting pedagogies and ask ourselves which road we should travel on, it seems to me that we always look in the same direction for the answers. “I stopped him” [she said] “and asked him if he was lost.

“Tell me when you see your mum,” I said to him. “No,” the child replied. For me, that story is a perfect illustration of someone not taking the road less travelled by. A vast amount of research has occurred in the teaching of reading and the wider development of literacy. All the above methods focus on the page, not on the child or its teacher. But the affective won’t go away. It’s a brand new discussion we have here. We were never tense.
