Teach Girls the Difference Between Calmbacks™ vs. Comebacks
Girls gravitate toward teasing, taunting, name-calling and intimidation to get responses from other girls. But educators and youth group leaders can teach girls more effective ways to respond to those verbal jabs. Learn how with this free teleclass.
“Through our years of experience, we’ve observed that this one specific strategy — we call it Calmbacks — stops the ongoing drama and the volley of insults between girls,” said Blair Wagner, CEO and co-founder of GAPRA. “A comeback is usually sharp and witty — it has a sting. A Calmback is calm and strong — it defuses emotional bullying.”
“A comeback is exactly what the bully wants to get out of their verbal jabs. When they receive a Calmback instead, the bullying is rendered ineffectual,”
All who attend the teleclass will learn how to receive a limited time offer on the new When Girls Hurt Girls® Small Group Kit of Calmbacks™. Register for the teleclass and purchase the teleclass transcript and audio files at http://www.gapraconnect.com/
