015. Manage Stress

An apology is more than just saying, “Sorry.” There's an art to apologizing, in fact, three parts to it:
1. Own It
2. Feel and Empathize
3. Make It Right
Let's explore these tools, plus:
What sort of things should I apologize for?
When should I apologize?
How should I apologize?
What if I don’t think what I did was wrong, but someone still felt hurt by it?
What if the other person is partly to blame?
What if I think I’ll make the same mistake again?
What happens after I apologize?

013. Make Friends Using Social Skills
How to make friends … can’t you just walk up to someone, ask if they’ll be your friend, and they say, “Yes!”? That might work, especially with really young kids, but it’s usually not that simple or straightforward. No worries, though, we’re gonna go over where to find friends and how to make them.

012. Extinguish Friendship Fires
Even the greatest BFFs can have bumps along the way. Sometimes there are misunderstandings. Other times emotions get the best of you both, and you say things you didn’t mean, or did mean to say. Some fires are accidental and others are started on purpose.
So how do you put out or extinguish Friendship Fires before they become a blaze? I want to share what I learned in my Girl Power Instructor training. Let’s discuss some conflict resolution Tools by spelling FRIENDS!
