Girl Talk is a small group for middle school girls that began as a way to guide some of my former students through the struggles of young womanhood. Through weekly meetings involving small group discussions, crafts, and personal writing prompts, the girls learn how to navigate their own personal challenges, while also exploring different perspectives on the similar issues they face.
In leading the groups, I act simply as a guide. I ask questions that make the girls think, as well as understand that it's not about erasing problems but about developing ways to handle problems as they arise.
