Free Teleclass to Provide Guidance on Emotional Bullying in Girls (Kindergarten through Grade 2)

By

When Girls Hurt Girls® Helps Educators Start Relational Aggression Prevention in Kindergarten
Free Live Teleclass for Educators, Counselors and Youth Groups

Relational aggression (a.k.a. RA or emotional bullying) can begin among girls as young as 2.5 years old. Early prevention is the key to happy, well-balanced girls, and educators, counselors and youth group leaders can get the help they need to start young girls off right. On Thursday, March 3, 2011, at 3:30 p.m. central time, A Way Through, LLC, will conduct the second of two content-rich calls focused on helping young girls through friendship problems. Register now for “When Girls Hurt Girls®: 3 Compelling Reasons to Start RA Prevention in Kindergarten (And How to Do It Right)” at www.awaythrough.com/teleclass. The live teleclass is free; the audio/transcript download is available for $5. 

“Most people think of relational aggression as a ’tween or teen problem, but research indicates that relational aggression starts as young as age 2.5. As soon as girls start making friends, their emotionally charged wiring can result in emotional bullying,” said Jane Balvanz, an elementary school counselor and co-founder of A Way Through, LLC. “Fortunately, girls this age and in kindergarten through grade 2 are very open to adult guidance, so it’s a great time to share the tools and techniques they need to work through their own issues.”

“As adults, we must stop swooping in to solve problems for our girls. This sends them the wrong message — that we don’t trust in their abilities,” said Blair Wagner, co-founder of A Way Through, LLC. “Instead, let’s work with them to nurture their self confidence. Let’s help them groom their social skills, so they can speak up, think of others’ feelings, and become independent problem solvers who can manage anything life throws at them.”

With this teleclass, A Way Through celebrates the completion of its curricula for When Girls Hurt Girls® Grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. The Grades K-2 curriculum will be complete in March with the release of the Audio CDs and Role Play Cards to accompany the K-2 Parent Pack. These age-appropriate materials introduce two new techniques that enable educators and parents to coach girls who are not yet able to read and provide responses that allow girls to think and feel for themselves.

Those who attend the teleclass will learn how to receive a limited time offer on these materials. Register for the teleclass and purchase the teleclass transcript and audio files at www.awaythrough.com/teleclass.
