Adolescence is a time when girls are known for cliques, relational aggression, and social exclusion. Many of us have our own personal stories of painful social interactions and social injustice to share. How then can we as teachers best support our students through these tumultuous years? This webinar will provide how-to strategies for addressing the growing problem of girl meanness in middle school and high school. Participants will learn how to address friendship struggles and girl bullying within the context of the classroom and social media. Join Dr. Michelle Anthony as she explains the behavior through a developmental lens with a positive tone. She will share a simple four-step process, along with a variety of take-back tools and strategies, to help teachers teach and adolescent girls to manage the many conflicts and dilemmas they face in the teen years.

I agree that teens love social media and are bogged down by it as well. Great information, thanks for sharing!
It is interesting that you say many young kids love social media but also are bogged down by anxiety because of it. I was intrigued by your daughter's reaction of relief when you took her phone away. It makes me realize that young students do not realize that they do not have to be a part of the group think mentality of social media. Many fee that it is the norm for people their age and that there simply is no option but to participate. We need to educate our young ones on their freedom of choice to not be involved and how to use social media safely when they do choose to use it.
