PARENT EDUCATION TALK FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS
Raising Resilient Girls is a 1-hour talk followed by a 30 minute Q&A session for parents, teachers, and community members
Girls Leadership speaks to parents and teachers across the country about the challenges girls face today, the reasons why we see girls struggling, and what we can do to help them. In this acclaimed 1-hour talk (followed by a 30 minute Q&A), we share how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence, and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and social leadership. This engaging presentation covers the development of girl dynamics beginning in preschool through high school.
As written up in Parents Magazine, this talk concentrates on practical advice that can be executed in a real-life setting, such as:
- Talking about your own not-so-happy feelings;
- Sharing your mistakes;
- Helping your daughter to solve her own problems;
- The Good Girl Phenomenon and conflict as an opportunity for positive change
This presentation is for adults only. Parents, Community Members, and Teachers from outside our school are welcome!
Presentation Fee: Free
