Box Out Bullying is a leader in giving students the tools to peacefully resolve conflicts on their own, leading to long-term and sustainable results.

Peace Tables are designated spaces in the classroom environment where children can go to take a moment, calm themselves, and work out conflicts in a peaceful way.

At Box Out Bullying, we seek to empower educators and students to recognize the difference between bullying and conflict. Conflicts , every day disagreements or misunderstandings, are a natural part of the human experience. Finding a consistent and peaceful way to resolve conflicts can be a daunting task for educators. This is where the Peace Table comes in.

Peace Tables encourage conflict resolution through peaceful and respectful communication.

Some benefits of the Peace Table:

– It encourages children to be open and express what’s on their mind.

– It gives students a routine: a specific place and method to achieve an agreeable solution.

– It is quick and simple to set up.

– It saves time and energy for both students and educators, creating a lasting and sustainable solution.
