This is how conflicts can be resolved

This is how conflicts can be resolved

Without having to go through a lot of technical literature or ask experts, it was clear when dealing with the topic of conflict that children can solve conflicts. It is important, he said, for adults to demonstrate strategies for dealing with conflict or to work with children to develop strategies for dealing with conflict or preventing it from happening in the first place.
The children in the mouse group at the oberthulba children’s house have learned various strategies for resolving conflicts independently and more quickly. During the project, the children were able to experience what feelings are and how they feel. At the end of the project, each child was able to describe the actual state of his or her own feelings in words.
Where to put my anger? The mausekinder were also able to put this into practice quickly. Together, they designed a bucket of water and looked for a suitable place in the group room. This bucket of champagne is there to let off steam, you can pour champagne into the bucket or just shout loudly into it. Then quickly put the lid back on the bucket so that the rage couldn’t get away again. Because if you have a bucket of anger, you don’t need to hit it.
The book "the little brawlers" glimpses of what brawlers actually are. Everyone now knows that they sometimes sit on our shoulders and stir up trouble, because these cheeky troublemakers whisper nasty things into our ears that we should do to make others argue. But the mice are smart and have learned how to get rid of these troublemakers very quickly.
Resolving conflicts is not always easy, but the mice children in the children’s house have been shown many strategies for responding individually.

Alex ulmer’s entertaining excursion into the world of mushrooms

Alex ulmer's entertaining excursion into the world of mushrooms

"A war rages under the earth every second, a battle with chemical substances." The fungus expert and graduate geoecologist alex ulmer in mitwitz vividly and graphically described the course of fungal growth. His lecture was all about an edible growth that goes into the cooking pot for many people, but for some it could also be the last meal. "If someone doesn’t really know their way around, it’s a bit like playing russian roulette", he admitted.

Ulmer’s lecture on the fungal kingdom cleared up with prejudices fundamentally. He answered fundamental questions, which often divide opinions, with an indomitable logic. "Do you cut off a mushroom or do you have to twist it out??", the question came from the audience. Everyone was staring intently at the expert. "A mushroom is like an apple tree, only in reverse. Does the tree break if you pick an apple or separate it?? No. Why would a fungus break it? It is rooted under the ground, what peeps out at the top is only the fruit. But nevertheless I would rather turn it out, because important characteristics for the edibility are often found at the lower end of the stem. Please be sure to leave the hole clean afterwards." Also with the traditional ideas about the "mushroom season" he said: "fungi are present all year round, even in winter. Only dry phases they do not like. And regarding the quantity limit on collecting: "it is limited to a few species, but in principle, everyone should anyway cover only their own needs. Emperor’s mushroom and truffle cannot be harvested at all. In addition, one should also consider the pollution of the fungi. And do not try blob the tour with the silver spoon, which you put in the pan during preparation to determine whether the mushroom is poisonous. This is complete nonsense. Unless you have deadly searches." In general it makes much more sense to know the poisonous species anyway, because there are much less of them than the edible ones.

Because pictures are more likely to create a learning effect in people’s minds than mere words, he used this effect several times over. For example, he told of the fly agaric, also known as the "mother-in-law mushroom" referred to. "But there are other species that are suitable", he added with a wink. He strongly advised against using mushrooms as hallucinogens. "Unless you have an urgent need for dialysis."

Kulmbach house “sternstunden”: a perfect world for abused children

Kulmbach house

Ole (name changed by the editors) did not know affection. He grew up in a homeless shelter and experienced fatherly violence as a very young child. Ole had to be hospitalized several times, then came to foster parents and to various youth welfare facilities, which he always had to leave after a short time. He found no support anywhere. He was homeless when he entered the "sternstunden" children's home two years ago as a four-year-old where severely traumatized children find a home.

As if frozen

"The little boy was frozen, couldn't show any emotion", remembers udo dirks, who runs the sibling gummi foundation's facility at schiebgraben. A facility without equal in bavaria. "Because we are the only ones who take in severely traumatized children as young as three years old", as edeltraud dahlhoff, who heads the "family and education" department, explains of the rubber foundation.

Building a relationship

Because the bavarian broadcasting company's aid organization supported the project, the children's home, which was opened in 2015, is called "sternstunden". It is a newly built duplex in which the psychological wounds inflicted on children between the ages of three and eight by their own parents are supposed to heal. Like ole, all 13 other residents have experienced beatings, sexual abuse and neglect. "You could never trust anyone. Our goal is therefore first of all to build up a relationship with them, to give them security", says udo dirks.

Dead body found in shared accommodation

After the 69-year-old suffered a bleeding head injury, an autopsy was carried out on the orders of the public prosecutor's office in wurzburg. According to police, after a first preliminary section result it is now certain that this injury was not the cause of death. The cause of the man's death has not yet been determined with absolute certainty. A 59-year-old man who had had a physical altercation with the deceased the day before was first arrested and then released.

The resident had been found a few minutes after 10:00 am in the communal kitchen of the housing container provided by the municipality of veitshochheim. Since it could not be ruled out that the man had died a violent death due to a bleeding head injury, the wurzburg criminal police immediately took over the further investigation. A forensic pathologist also arrived on the scene to examine the dead man. An autopsy was carried out on the same day on the instructions of the public prosecutor's office in wurzburg. It is now clear that the injury was not the cause of death. It will only be possible to say what the 69-year-old occupant of the shipping container died of once further forensic results are available.

The investigation by the criminal police quickly revealed that the 69-year-old and a fellow resident ten years younger than him had had an altercation during the course of the match on sunday. Since the 59-year-old man was not present when the dead body was found, the police initiated a targeted search for the man.
