This webinar will provide how-to strategies for addressing the growing problem of girl meanness in elementary school. Participants will learn how to address friendship struggles and girl bullying within the context of the classroom. Join Dr. Michelle Anthony as she explains the behavior through a developmental lens with a positive tone, and shares a simple Four Step process, along with a variety of take-back tools and strategies, to help teachers teach, and elementary-aged students manage the many conflicts and dilemmas they face in the early years.
