PODCAST: Assertiveness Skills

In this episode of the Pooky Ponders Podcast, I delve into the world of assertiveness and share a treasure trove of practical tools to help children master this crucial skill. 

From role-playing activities that bring scenarios to life, to the powerful “I Statements” technique that fosters effective communication, I explore a toolkit designed to enhance kids’ assertiveness. 

We’ll also uncover the significance of body language in assertive interactions and how self-advocacy and conflict resolution skills empower children to stand up for themselves.
