You're Mean! : When Words Hurt Us
This age-appropriate program helps children understand that words can hurt—whether the insults are intentional or the inadvertent result of "trying to be funny." Four common school and home vignettes identify the power of words: a know-it-all who tries to boss others around, a playground bully who enjoys picking on other children, a teacher’s pet who relishes seeing other students make mistakes, and an older sibling whose sarcastic banter distresses her little brother. Each vignette includes a positive outcome where children find a way to stand up for themselves and overcome the power of hurtful words. Techniques include: Stand Up for Yourself, Ignore the Bully, Explain How the Words Make You Feel, and Seek Help From an Adult. Human Relations Media, 2007. (13 min. ; $1.62)
