Girl Scouts Learn to Cope with Bullies

First Grade Girl Scouts at Greenacres learned how to deal with bullying in a program presented by Scarsdale Family Counseling Service on Friday March 9.

Youth Outreach Worker Jenna Horowitz started by reading a book about a playground bully, Mean Jean "The Recess Queen" and then engaged the girls in a conversation about recognizing bullies and using strategies to deal with them. What to do? Kids suggested telling an older child or a parent; ignoring the bully and walking away; telling the bully to "stop, you're being mean," or standing up to them ... all good suggestions!

After the discussion, kids drew pictures of "Mean Jean," and came up with words to use in these situations.
