During these unprecedented times, our children are at greater risk of isolation and cyber bullying experiences. Initial research shows cyberbullying has increased 70% during stay-at-home orders. Pandemic stressors are causing kids to lash out or potentially create conflict with others. Since they can only connect now on social media, some of the greatest online risks to kids have become cyberbullying, shaming, and exploitation.
Here we bring our unique program to K-12 students as an on-line platform that is safe, easily accessible and at no cost to schools.
Each session is 45 minute providing one class a week for 25 weeks.
We offer these programs with puppets to children ages K-3, and with a psychologist on every session for 4th and 5th grade, Middle school and High School students. Each program is unique to the age group and will have up to 30 children per session.
Our programs engage children in teaching empathy, kindness, friendship, compassion, inclusivity and tolerance by understanding and accepting each others uniqueness. Furthermore we discuss ways to forgive easily, deal with anger appropriately workout differences peacefully and “Pledge to be a Friend” to others with kindness.
Each program uses a multimedia platform to address each age group and area of interest. We use puppets, stories, pledges, the 6 pillars of characters and kindness activities that provide hands-on opportunities for collaboration and deepening friendships.
