This age - appropriate program helps children understand that words can hurt - whether the insults are intentional or the inadvertent result of "trying to be funny." Four common school and home vignettes identify the power of words: a know-it-all who tries to boss others around, a playground bully who enjoys picking on other children, a teacher's pet who relishes seeing other students make mistakes, and an older sibling whose sarcastic banter distresses her little brother. Each vignette includes a positive outcome where children find a way to stand up for themselves and overcome the power of hurtful words. Techniques include:

  • Stand Up for Yourself
  • Ignore the Bully
  • Explain How the Words Make You Feel
  • Seek Help From an Adult

Includes: DVD, resource guide with student worksheets.
