What Everyone Else Thinks:
Helping Middle Schoolers Fight PAA*

(*Peer Approval Addiction)

Annie talking with educators at the National Middle School Association Conference, 2008

NEW: Annie is also available for Skype video seminars!

Challenges to being your own person in middle school can be huge, with the cost of losing oneself, dangerously high. The desperation of 6th-8th graders to fit in often leads to regrettable choices. Some are life altering and many leave emotional scars. The rest are just plain embarrassing and/or hurtful. Middle Schoolers need educators who understand their social reality. They also need more caring adults who get that an adolescent’s brain often works against her.  School administrators, teachers and counselors need practical strategies for helping students make choices that reflect who they really are, in middle school and beyond.

Help your students fight against Peer Approval Addiction*
*(doing whatever it takes to fit in)

Annie Fox is a Master teacher who has helped thousands of educators transform their schools into more inclusive, respectful places by giving them practical strategies for helping students.
