This event is most appropriate for adults.
The Santa Fe Mountain Center is pleased to present an evening with Rosalind Wiseman, best-selling author and bullying expert as a fundraiser for our bullying prevention work AND to create a safer and more inclusive culture in our schools.
Most famously the author of Queen Bees & Wannabes, which was the basis for the movie Mean Girls – Rosalind Wiseman is an internationally recognized expert on children, teens, parenting, bullying, social justice and ethical leadership. Her latest book, Masterminds & Wingmen, focuses on issues boys face.
In this presentation, Wiseman issues a call to action to transform the way we speak to and about young people. She’ll pull back the curtain on what’s really going on between boys and girls and why they can be so reluctant to ask adults for help. She’ll share how boys’ and girls’ social group dynamics influence their interactions and offer step-by-step advice on how to teach young people to treat each other with dignity. She’ll also give common-sense suggestions about how to deal with the frequent struggles between teens and their parents—from video games and social networking to communication breakdowns. By the end of the presentation, Wiseman will have provided concrete strategies for any parent, educator, or professional who works with children and teens, and participants will walk away with positive ways to impact their community.
