Tip for smart cell phone use:

Keep it kind. Because people socialize on cellphones as much as online, cyberbullying can be mobile too. Treat people on phones and the web the way you would in person, and the risk of being bullied goes down. Be aware, too, of people randomly taking pictures at parties, in locker rooms, etc. – you may not want to be tagged in their social-network photo albums!

Today’s Social Skills Lesson

Today, your child was presented a social skills class coordinated by our counseling team.

We began with a review of our school wide theme of “GRRR”: Granite Grizzlies are Responsible, Respectful and Ready to learn! The social skills classes each month will provide the skills to “GRRR”!

  • We participated in a mindfulness breathing and relaxing exercise.
  • We also reviewed “If you don’t show it, they won’t know it!”
  • Today’s topics:
    • Conflict Resolution: Learning our options when having trouble with a friendship. Options reviewed: compromise, take turns, postpone/take a break, share, avoid, humor, chance, apologize (saying “I’m sorry” doesn’t always mean, “I am wrong”. It can mean “I am sorry about the situation/agreeing to disagree), get help.
    • Self-Control: Using our steps of: 1. Stop, breathe, count. 2. Think what you are mad about and 3. Use a sentence that starts with “I feel”.
    • Getting pulled into other’s arguments and being asked to take sides: Letting
    • Sportsmanship: Discuss what it looks like to win gracefully and to lose gracefully and how this can affect our ability to make and to keep friends.

Please discuss with your child what he/she has learned from this lesson. It can provide a wonderful form of reinforcement of essential interpersonal skills.
