Girls Helping Girls

Peer Relations Training for Girls with a Special Focus on "Girl Bullying"


Here is an example of one of the 17 Girls Helping Girls behaviors that our program identifies as mean:

False Fronting:

This is mean: This is when you act one way in front of someone and then as soon as she leaves you talk about her behind her back.

Why it's mean: It keeps girls wondering if people are talking about them and might even make them shy about coming up to "friends."

What you can do: Try not to talk about someone if they are not there. If your friends start saying mean things, try to be disinterested and say "whatever" or something that says "I'm bored with this..."
