Great tool and Much needed
on November 5, 2007
At a time when relational aggression (female bullying) is so rampant, this book could not have come at a better time. I bought this while in attendance at a National "Mean Girls" conference. At the elementary schools I work in as a counselor, there are many problems with female bullying, especially among the "popular girls". I began a lunch group with some of my female 5th and 6th graders and they have really taken to the curriculum in this book as it is extremely relevant and has encouraged great discussion. Now if only I could get them to truly internalize it all. As there has been some growth, it is far from where we need to be. The other fantastic thing about this book, is that while it is put together as an 8 week curriculum, there are three different choices of activity for each week, so you can pick the one you like best, or better yet, keep the group for longer than the 8 weeks to get more of them in. I have stretched my group out two weeks as I felt I had to include two additional activities. One of the best buys I have made as a school counselor.
