In Lesson 4, we discuss self-talk—what we think in our minds about ourselves or say aloud to others about ourselves. While each girl runs with a friend, they practice how to catch and challenge negative self-talk by coming up with ways to change from negative to positive self-talk. Each girl’s goal before next time is to practice this. Try helping her think positive!
In Lesson 5, we had fun exploring our emotions. The girls learn to figure out what they feel and how to deal with their feelings in a healthy way. The girls even pretend they are “emotion detectives”!
