There’s so much in the news these days about bullies, cliques and kids terrorizing other kids via text messages or Facebook. And girls are just as much to blame for this as boys. Girls can be mean, and when they are mean, they’re mean to each other. Do mean girls grow up to be mean women? Do we need to help our girls understand what being kind looks like anymore? At SMARTY we are so lucky to have this supportive community of women (no gossip, no competitiveness, no cliques), but when you’re in 8th grade, in high school, in college…all bets are off. I’m so happy to welcome two women into the SMARTY community who aim to change all this. Lauren Parsekian and Molly Stroud made a film called Finding Kind set to be released this September. Check out the site and the mission. www.kindcampaign.com Let’s see how we can help them grow their message so that no girl is left crying in a bathroom….or worse….ever again.
