Learning about Conflict Resolution

Danish is so tired of his parents fighting all the time. He wishes they would just stop, or at least fight when he’s not there to hear them. At every opportunity, he retreats into his room, where he tries to improve his speed at solving the Rubik’s cube, his only ‘safe space’ these days. At school, he freezes every time a potential confrontation looms, or runs and hides when conflict stares him in the face. But despite his best efforts, one day, all of this spirals out of control. Danish discovers that conflict cannot be solved by avoiding it.
