While the physical altercations and bullying by boys is sometimes more visible, mean behavior on the part of girls and their emotional bullying can be just as damaging. 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.

This was an excellent webinar. I learned some strategies that will definitely help in any settings with little girls. Thanks for a great webinar Dr. Anthony
We really need to promote empathy, even in very young children, when it should be a little more of the norm. I liked the "poetry" aspect and using pictures to explain emotions.

I was not so aware of the "meanness" of girls in the K-3 setting until my daughter experienced many of these same issues.
