Teach children to identify early relational aggression , as well as the strategy of using cognitive self defense to increase one’s confidence with mean peers. A helpful life skill for social skills training, friendship groups, and classroom lessons.
Children are provided hurtful comment cards that prompt discussion. Bee stings represent the hurtful words, and butterfly kisses symbolize kind words. Children will then match the words under a bee sting or a butterfly kiss. This is helpful for later generalization when you catch good behavior, for example saying, “I am seeing butterfly kiss behavior.”
Once the relational aggressive behavior is understood, children will then have the opportunity to use scripted task cards for responding to "bee sting" behavior. They will place appropriate comeback statements and self-talk task cards on the "bee sting remover" page.
Role plays are encouraged to gain mastery.
What is included:
20 bee sting and 20 butterfly kiss scenario task cards for matching.
1 page for placing appropriate responses.
1 sign to hold up for guessing.
12 verbal response task cards to say to the aggressor when “stung.”
