Beech Acres Parenting Center understands, raising a daughter to grow into a thriving young woman amidst the social pressures and emotions that are in her peer environment can be complicated sometimes. Especially with the emergence of bullying, the nonprofit organization whose focus is on intentional strength based parenting, is hosting a March 20 workshop just for moms and daughters (ages kindergarten through high school).
In a fun, interactive hour, Surviving and Thriving in the Girl World will have daughters learning about the importance of empathy and how it connects to understanding and celebrating differences. Through role playing and discussion, girls will be encouraged to step back from situations to see another girl’s point of view and begin to ask themselves, “How are my actions impacting others?” and “What type of person do I want to be?”
The Beech Acres workshop will focus on the eight roles in the Girl World as identified in Rosalind Wiseman’s book, Queen Bees and Wannabes. Those roles include: the queen bee, the sidekick, the banker, the messenger, the pleaser/wannabe, the target, the torn bystander, and the champion. And roles can be different depending on the group of peers or the social situation. By recognizing their role, they can ask themselves, “Is this who I want to be?” “Why is this role important to me?”
“Beech Acres has brought Rosalind Wiseman to Cincinnati several times in the past, and moms and daughters have greatly enjoyed her seminar. This workshop is based on Rosalind’s material in her book and we’re excited to be offering this workshop,” said Kim Chapman, Beech Acres Parenting Center parenting education program manager.
Surviving and Thriving in the Girl World will be March 20, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Beech Acres Parenting Center main campus in Anderson (6881 Beechmont Ave; 45230). Cost is $15 per person and pre-registration is required at www.beechacres.org/workshops or by calling 513-231-6630.
