You know your daughter has an inner-super girl. You’ve seen it when she learned to run, go to school, and make new friends. The question is, does she know what she is capable of? Does she know the amazing relationships that she deserves?
We have a NEW parent and daughter program for second and third grade girls that will teach every participant the skills to be brave, resilient, and connected. Last Fall we met with parent alums of our other 2nd and 3rd grade program and asked them what challenges their girls were facing. Parents told us their daughters needed:
- skills to manage difficult feelings,
- skills to recognize and take the healthy risks to try new activities,
- concrete approaches to disagreements with friends, and
- someone to let their girls know that this BFF expectation is a myth — all relationships have bumps in the road.
Brave Goals, Balanced Friendships
Four Sessions that Build Your Brave In Any Relationship
In this playful and interactive workshop, parents and girls will…
Week One: True Friendship Inside & Out
Debunk the myth of the one true, perfect, best friend by identifying that there can be many types of friends in their “Friendship Forest” that help us grow.
Week Two: Self-care and Managing Emotions
Develop a “Self-Care” plan to manage their feelings when they are upset and how to take care of themselves when tough feelings arise.
Week Three: Conflict and Compromise: Let’s Make A Deal!
Learn how to compromise assertively to keep relationships in balance using common language around letting go, holding on, and making a deal.
Week Four: Building Our Brave Muscles
Acknowledge feelings of doubt and nervousness to take steps towards bravery in their everyday lives.
