Next Friday, October 27th, our middle schoolers meet again from 6:30-8:00. We will be focusing on teaching the difference between your Inner Critic vs. your Inner Coach. Building and recognizing our own self-talk is important in building self-esteem and in being able to engage socially with peers. We will also be teaching the variances of “teasing” whether it is done in jest with a friend, done playfully during a game, or whether it has a mean undertone. We’ll be focusing on specific examples of how you can “read” the cues in a social situation to know which category the teasing falls under.
Our middle schoolers will come together one time in November on the 17th from 6:30-8:00. Our children have access to so much of the world with social media and the web. It’s challenging to teach them healthy boundaries with social media until they have some self-awareness of who they are. We will be talking about Who Am I? and creating collages. It is our goal that as they continue to grow in self-awareness, they will be empowered with confidence when accessing social media and the web.
We can comfortably house 10 middle schoolers in each group. If you are interested in attending the next two sessions, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Please also feel free to e-mail us with any questions! Middle School OTB Group-Fall Semester
We will post details about December soon! However, we will be bringing our drama therapist back on December 8th and having an end of the semester party on December 15th! We have a chef coming in to bake something delicious with our middle schoolers.
