Class Summary - Today we reviewed our talk about self-esteem. We reviewed what self-esteem was and we talk about how compliments and realizing our strengths is a great way to improve our self-esteem. We then brainstormed what things might lower our self-esteem. I reminded students that students with a high self-esteem are more likely to make healthy decisions so we want to keep a high self-esteem. When we get called a name or get bullied or bossed around we need to learn healthy ways to address the situation. We watch a short video titled, ‘You’re Mean! When Words Hurt Us’. The video shows a couple ways that young people can deal with others when they are being difficult and hurting our self esteem. Not all approaches will work for them, but they should start trying to figure out different ways to deal with difficult people. When the video was finished I handed out the worksheets based on the video.
