Teasing & Name-Calling
Developed for our youngest audiences, this presentation promotes caring and respect by showing that words can really hurt despite what children may have heard in the saying, “Sticks and stones …” It discourages teasing and name calling that can lead to future bullying, while encouraging kindness.
Awareness of Differences
This program promotes respect, understanding and acceptance of all individuals regardless of their differences that may lead to exclusion and harassment. By allowing open conversation about diversity, this presentation helps build cultural awareness and breaks down barriers — showing students that we are all different in some ways, but we are all the same on the inside.
Talk it Out! Promoting Self Regulation and Effective Communication in Times of Stress
By giving the audience a chance to help the Kids on the Block characters, the children are empowered with the opportunity to talk about how to deal with difficult feelings and learn strategies to stay calm in overwhelming, stressful situations that occur in everyday life. It teaches a simple technique to remain grounded and present so they can be encouraged to deal with negative emotions effectively and stay connected to others during these times.
