Our expert says:
I think the approach to be taken, and the material to be taught, as regards assertiveness and conflict management will obvious vary according to a child's emotional and social age. It'd be a very good idea for such material to be included within school curricula, rather than some of the marginally relevant stuff they do get taught. But the answer would also need to be very much individualized. I think especially in a child of this age and pre-school, it'd be best for you to teach her these skills on a case-by-case basis, discussing these issues amongst other chat, and in relationship to actual examples as they arise inher relationships with others, and as advice, and in discussion of alternative choices she may face. Then one can draw generalized rules or principals from specific experiences.
