Cliques are happening earlier and earlier these days. Second graders are buddying up with their bff's and leaving other kids out. 4th grade girls are writing some major blows on the bathroom walls about their fellow females (saw that one the other day). It's a harsh world out there. Susan Sprague has come out with a resource titled Coping with Cliques: A Workbook to Help Girls Deal with Gossip, Put-Downs, Bullying, and Other Mean Behavior that is sure to aide any young girl dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, and how to deal with negativity on an emotional level. I would recommend these workbook "lessons" for middle school aged girls and younger, it's a bit too young for high schoolers.
