Compromises
By Jane Runyon
  

1     A dictionary tells you that a compromise is an agreement between two opposing views. In this agreement, both sides give up a little of what they want. The idea behind a compromise is to make both sides happy. A compromise can be reached in many different ways.
 
2     Let's say Joe and Tim have permission to go to a movie. Joe has his heart set on seeing a new action adventure movie starring Know-It-All Man. Tim wants to see a new movie about his favorite animals, zebras. Their parents say they must attend the same movie. What should they do?
 
3     One solution would be to go to the action adventure movie tonight and go to the animal adventure next week. Both boys would be able to see the movie they like, just not right now. Joe would be happy this week. If nothing keeps them from going to the movie next week, then Tim would be happy.
 
4     Another solution would be to spend half the evening at the action adventure movie. The second half of the evening, they would go to the zebra movie. Each boy would get to see the movie he wants, but only half of it.
 
5     A third solution would be to go to the full length cartoon that is also playing at the theater. Neither boy would get to see the movie he chose, but they both enjoy cartoons.
