You have students who have begun to engage in problem behaviors, such as lying, cheating, stealing and bullying.
You want a majority of your students to positively influence the few who are engaging in negative behaviors.
You want to deal with the problem behaviors in a way that engages all of your students, gets their input and feedback, holds them accountable and is also fun!
"Research shows that kids who exhibit problem behaviors, such as lying, stealing, cheating and bullying, in the late elementary years are at a higher risk for earlier alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. It's our job to prevent these problem behaviors during this critical time if we want kids to have the most positive future. They deserve it."
