Interactive and Engaging
Pamela will come to your school to facilitate a 45-minute engaging presentation, followed by 15 minutes or questions and answers. Team Meadows recommends that the assemblies are divided into a narrow age range so the material presented will be relevant and appropriate. Example: 3rd-5th grade, 6th – 8th grade, High School and College
Parents Rising Up
Pamela will be the first to admit – parenting is hard; kids don't come with a handbook and as parents we can have limited control on outside influences. The challenges that our children have are real and the statistics, according to DoSomething.org are startling:
Over 70% of girls age 15 to 17 avoid normal daily activities, such as attending school
75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25% of girls with high self-esteem.
About 20% of teens will experience depression before they reach adulthood.
Teen girls that have a negative view of themselves are 4 times more likely to take part in activities with boys that they've ended up regretting later.
38% of boys in middle school and high school reported using protein supplements and nearly 6% admitted to experimenting with steroids.
7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don’t measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
Pamela will partner with parents to share proven tools and techniques that parents can use to encourage their children and empower themselves with facts and data to support conversations with their children.
