In this Canadian-produced series, internationally renowned youth speaker Anthony McLean sits down with high school students to lead them in discussion about the issues they face in their relationships with friends and schoolmates everyday. The students get real and give their opinions on why gossiping is so easy, why preventing bullies is so hard, and what the true cost of popularity is. This series also features a special performance of an original song “Treat ‘Em Well” by Anthony McLean, as well as interviews with experts and community leaders.

Series includes the following 7 programs, 8 - 12 minutes each on 2 DVDs.

  • Bullying - You don’t have to like everyone but you do have to respect everyone. Using his original song, “Treat ‘em Well”, Anthony speaks to high school students at their level in an engaging and memorable way.
  • Conflict and Drama - Learning how to co-exist with people you disagree with is a major life skill. Gossip and drama can be exciting, but is that the right choice for the people involved, including you?
  • The Bystanders - Bullying happens every day in school, which means a lot of students become bystanders. Bystanders often play the most important role in conflict. Always ask yourself this question, “what would I want people to do for me if I was in this situation?”
  • Being Bullied - High school students discuss how bullying is even worse now tha tsocial media means kids can get nasty both online and in person.
  • Gossip - Those who gossip with you will eventually gossip about you. When talking about everyone else’s drama affects your own friendships, is it worth it?
  • Popularity and Friendship - It’s better to build genuine relationships than to chase after fake ones. Students lend their own wisdom on what a true friendship looks like, how to spot a toxic one and whether the cost of popularity is really worth it.
  • Social Media - What you post today can linger forever. Will you use it to hurt or to help? Think before you click.
