No More Mean Girls
Girls can be mean—very mean. And in this modern era, “mean girl”’dynamics start in the primary grades—or even preschool! Katie Hurley, author of “No More Mean Girls: The Secret to Raising Strong, Confident, and Compassionate Girls", joins me on the podcast this week to share practical strategies for empowering girls! Learn the cognitive distortions that affect self-esteem and how to teach girls more realistic and positive ways of thinking. Find out what @katiefhurley believes is behind “girl drama” (and why she doesn’t like that term!) and what parents can do to equip their daughters to thrive in a variety of social contexts. We delve into research on SEL (social and emotional learning) and discover how it impacts not only social skills but academic achievement as well! Finally, Katie provides the latest research on combatting bullying—we learn what really works! This week’s episode is part 1 of a two part series with Katie Hurley, LCSW.
