02/19/20 Week A: This first session the youth started out by playing a fun, yummy candy game to help get to know each other.
They then discussed the changes they are seeing in themselves as they develop.
Meanwhile, the caregivers discussed adolescent development. They talked about physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, psychological and social/emotional changes in their youth’s behavior.
Positive interaction (5:1 ratio) was presented and demonstrated.
For the family session, we played a get to know you icebreaker and then the families each created a family motto. Family mottos included: Try Hard, You Got this! Care For Others, yourself and the planet! Be Kind, Live Big!
They played a family yarn activity to demonstrate that there is strength in numbers and were encouraged to remember the 5:1 positive interactions ratio throughout the next week.
