Friendship First Aid Kit covers 17 relationship problems that occur in elementary and middle school:tattling, anger, complaining, bossiness, putting others down, intensifying a disagreement, attempting to keep friends from having other friends, etc. This material was written out of self-defense due to the friendship problems knocking on her counselor door. Patricia Taylor Kienzle is the author of the "Life is like a pickle. Sometimes it's sweet. Sometimes it's sour." program. She has also written a conflict management program for elementary students called "Dinosolve." These two books also have lessons related to Friendship First Aid. Parts of Friendship First Aid can be used for students under second grade, but there is an abundance of materials for the younger children in the two books mentioned above.
I found the flash drive and there is a blank page where the discussion guide should be. I hope I can find a hard copy of it. I know I have copy of the 17 statements.
I found what had disappeared in a copy I had at school. You should be getting a notification of revisions.
I have mine copied and ready to use with third grade.

I really like your Friendship First Aid Kit but where is the Discussion Guide numbered to correspond with the 17 statements? It is listed on the page that says "Materials Included in Friendship First Aid" but I cannot find it in the download. Thanks! - Virginia
I am looking into this, I submitted this quite a while ago and must have written a discussion guide. I've done the lessons so many times, I never made a copy to put with my set. I cannot get to the original document from this site to check it out. Just want to make sure you didn't find it. If it is missing, I can't believe no one has mentioned it in the last couple of years.
