Girls and Friendships in Elementary School

All girls are worthy of friendship, love, support, kindness, safety, well-being, and adults who see and reinforce the best in them.  This course is for parents and caregivers of girls in grades K-5 who wish to support girls' healthy friendship skills.  Whether your girl is lonely, aggressive, or a bystander (or at times all three!), this class can provide some helpful insights.  Parents/caregivers will support one another and learn more about:

  • Typical elementary-age social and emotional development
  • Cliques, social pressure, "relational aggression" and bullying
  • Specific tactics for coaching a girl through friendship challenges

This course will run 1.5 hours once weekly for eight weeks.  This is a parent-only class, sibling care is available.
