Join us at the Schlessman Family Branch Library on Sunday, September 12 at 2 p.m. to hear Dr. Michelle Anthony speak on the cultural pressures and obstacles confronting young women and girls today and what we can do to help. A book signing will follow this illuminating event.
Dr. Anthony, co-author of Little Girls Can Be Mean will present a how-to strategy session for addressing the growing problem of girl meanness in elementary school, including how and why meanness happens, ways to help girls deal with and resolve friendship struggles, and girl bullying. Attendees will learn a simple Four Step process, along with a variety of take-back tools, strategies, and activities to help their children approach many social struggles in the early years.
Dr. Anthony and her co-author Dr. Reyna Lindert are founding members of Signing Smart, a strategy-based approach to signing with hearing infants and toddlers that is fun, simple, and successful. The library owns My First Signs and What Do You See?, written by Dr. Anthony and Dr. Lindert to help you communicate with your baby or toddler with both words, sounds and the printed text.
