This week we’re continuing our little debate on some controversial topics. Last week we had a series of categories and in the interest of time only got through a few questions in each category. This week we’re going to pick up where we left off and see if we can get through the remaining questions.
This week we’re changing things up a little bit as we get a little controversial. Instead of focusing on a single topic of discussion to dissect and help folks with, I wanted to get your perspective on a number of controversial topics with a series of debate questions. Just a general word of caution to our audience, we will be discussing some topics that might not be appropriate for a younger audience members but we will endeavor to keep it as mature and age appropriate as we always do.
This week we’re talking about conflict resolution. We’ll look at some of the common causes of conflict, how conflicts aren’t necessarily a bad thing and how we can learn from them. We’ll talk about the ten commandments of conflicts and how to handle conflicts with love ones, friends and others. We’ll show you the skills you need to cope with conflict, how to avoid turning it into a negative experience and finally we’ll discuss the steps to take to reach a conflict resolution.
Much of what we talk about in this weeks episode applies not only to teens but to any situation where two or more people find themselves in conflict or on opposite sides of a given issue. We’ll teach you how to compromise, how to reason, and how to see a given issue from both sides you can better understand all points of view and argue your points from an informed perspective.
In this episode we take a look at the Presidential Election. We’ll explore what the requirements are to run for president and what the process of a presidential election looks like. We’ll explain complicated things like the Electoral College in a simple and easy to understand way. Then we’ll look at some of the reasons people run for president and some of the drawbacks to being president. Finally we put Madison on the spot as our fictional candidate and ask her some of the real questions that our presidential candidates are asked. Some of the answers are very interesting.
