Our Own Strengths and Needs

The third curriculum will focus on relationships and helping a child understand their value in relationships through games and exercises relative to the topics below.  At the beginning of the evening, children will be grouped with a leader for dinner that includes a fun “ice breaker” to establish a social connection.  They will be given an opportunity to practice and improve their basic everyday etiquette.  Following dinner, the children will participate in a craft project that focuses on how they feel in their relationships with family and friends, the power of respectful behavior, and the damage caused by un-harnessed anger.  Upon completion of the craft, the children will re-group to give them practice in social transitions.  The new group will engage in a team building exercise that explores emotional expression and how that affects their ability to have loving, positive relationships. Anger management techniques will be explored and practiced.  At the conclusion of the evening, the children will return to their original group and be given an opportunity to share their experiences.  A take-home packet will reinforce the evening’s program.
