Guidance Lessons for December- The Gift of Nothing

This time of year, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle...rushing around, buying presents for everyone. Our Guidance lessons for this month are centered around two friends and that priceless gift of friendship....the gift of 'nothing'. Each kiddo is then challenged to start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion to others (even being kind to those pesky brothers and sisters! ;), and each kiddo is asked to come up with one thing that they could do for others that doesn't cost a dime....each of our Eagles' 'gift of nothing'!

Group Counseling

Group Counseling will begin in January, for some of our kiddos, with topics focusing on anxiety, self-esteem, anger management, friendship/ social skills, and a variety of other topics. Groups meet once per week between 6-8 weeks. I use a variety of methods to work on these topics with kiddos: art activities, sand tray counseling, games, books, just to mention a few. If you'd like more information, please let me know.
