This 1 day workshop is for middle school girls (and those that identify as female) in grades 6th-8th available on Monday 1/29/19 (No School day for Beaverton Public Schools).

Establishing healthy boundaries helps increase confidence, decrease anxiety and allows people to feel secure.

Boundaries are at the most basic level what is okay and what is not okay with me. However Boundaries can be complicated, they can change, and we may not even be aware of a boundary we have until it is crossed.

As adults we still struggle with boundaries, imagine your daughter becoming aware of her boundaries and practicing setting them during the tween/teen years!

There are many kinds of boundaries:

  • Physical boundaries:  Personal space. Is it okay for me to eat off your plate? Hug or high five? Knock before eating my room.

  • Emotional boundaries: How much personal info. do I share with my friends?  What is okay to joke about and what isn’t? Am I responsible for making my friend feel better?

  • Energetic boundaries: Am I taking on other’s negative energies? Do I suddenly feel angry being around another angry person?

  • Digital boundaries: How much time do I spend on my phone? Who do I accept as followers on Instagram? Am I obligated to continue this Snap Chat streak? Do I answer texts at 3:00am? How do I get my homework done without distractions of YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram?

  • Friendship boundaries: Do I do what my friends are pressuring me to do? How do I not hurt feelings and keep my boundaries?

  • Parental boundaries: Letting my parents know if I want advice, feedback or just to be listened to.

Through games, discussion and inquiry we will have fun identifying and practicing boundaries!

Your daughter could really need Girls Rock Empowerment!

Kids today have a lot on their plate. There’s a feeling of a lot of anxiety amongst kids and parents.

Navigating the digital age with challenges with social media and technology is something we never had to deal with.

With less face to face interactions, kids are having less opportunities to practice social skills- developing empathy, listening skills, knowing how to suport a friend, etc.

Identifying feelings and knowing how to handle them is so important because we have so many things in our world to distract us, we can easily bypass our feelings.

We need opportunites for our girls to connect at a deeper level with each other and also see that we are all not perfect and in that imperfection, we can really witness each other and be seen and accepted. (Wouldn’t you have wanted this as a kid? I would!)

My classes consist of

  • breathing

  • games/experiential learning

  • talking/bonding

  • creative thinking

  • guided relaxation

Designed to help your daughter learn about herself and others. I have seen anxiety decrease as girls feel more freedom to be themselves. 

I’ve got 2 classes starting next week of Jan. 14

Eighth Grade- The movie- See it with or without your teen?

In th Eighth Grade movie, we meet the main character Kayla during her last week of 8th grade. She is quiet at school, socially awkward, has her own YouTube channel, lives with her Dad and is an only child.

With an acne covered face and hunched over shoulders, Kayla  completely captures this age of utter awkwardness. Her irritation when ever her dad speaks, or doesn’t speak is relatable as a parent- no matter what you say it’s wrong.

Rated R???
In the news there has been some controversy that a film about an 8th grader is rated R. However, Common Sense Media rated it for age 14 +. You should know the movie has some swearing, talks about blowjobs and there is a truth or dare scene where the main character Kayla declines to participate in taking off her shirt in the back seat of a car with an older boy. Aside from deciding if you want your daughter to see those issues, there’s other considerations.

I felt the movie did a really good job portraying what the middle experience is like for a lot of girls. However my daughter who just finished 8th grade said the movie was unrealistic. When I asked her what she thought was unrealistic, she did not tell me. Part of me thinks it hit just a little too close to home. Perhaps the movie is better after you’ve made it through this awkward stage.

Should you take your daughter to see it?
I would highly recommend this movie for parents. If you have younger kids (like 4th-7th), you will gain insight and empathy towards the state of mind that your daughter may adopt as she goes through early adolescence.

A friend of mine showed the trailer to her daughter that just finished 8th grade and the daughter replied, “That’s my life. I don’t want to see a movie about it.” So proceed with caution and contemplate whether your daughter is ready for this movie. If she has surpassed the ultra self-conscious, everyone is watching me and judging me stage, she may enjoy it! 

Here’s a  really good video of 8th graders providing their thoughts on the movie.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the movie if you saw it, and if you saw it with your child, how was that?

Kim

Finding Compassion When Stuck in Judgement

One of our  biggest problems in life is judgment.

Toastmasters right now is my most dreaded part of the week! (Toastmasters is a group designed to help you become a better public speaker- a fear of mine). Last week I was assigned the  “Grammarian” role in Toastmasters. (My role was to keep track of “uh’s” and “ums”, notice any repeats or incomplete sentences, introduce the word of the day and point out grammatical errors. I do not know that much about grammar and could not find any grammatical errors. Did I mention this is a group for professional speakers? Well needless too say, my self- judgement monster hit me hard. The next day I had a judgement hangover.

From this place of judgement, I could not reach compassion within myself. I knew the reassurances to say to myself: “This was my first time. The other people have been doing this for years. I am just learning. It’s okay. I sucked and that is ok, I did it! Showing up and participating is enough!” But none of these statements assuaged my feelings of incompetence and self- doubt. I had dug myself into a hole of self-loathing. Then I up leveled the judgements to a global scale. “I’ll never be good at public speaking. How can I teach empowerment when I am such a wuss? I am such a fraud. etc.” You get the idea. Can you relate?

This raises the question: How do we get to a place of compassion towards ourselves when stuck in self- judgment and low confidence? 

I was not able to get to any sort of compassion.

However two days later I woke up in a much better space and I was able to get to a place of compassion. I was able to hear those words “You did it. You got through it and you survived.”

Think about teens and tweens- the hardest part of middle school is the heightened judgement that is shelled out and received. We are talking JUDGEMENT CITY!

We take judgement very seriously. We judge others to make ourselves feel better but we are really trying to escape our own self-judgement. We wouldn’t judge others so harshly if we didn’t judge ourselves so harshly.

The teen with her arms folded across her chest, sits in a stew of judgement-” I don’t want to do that. You can’t make me do that. That is stupid.”

We judge to keep ourselves safe. But it doesn’t work. We end up feeling worse. Girls talk about other girls all the time. And although they may feel better in the moment, judging themselves as better than the others, there’s the realization of what are others saying about me?

One of the antidotes to judgement is play. Play that moves you beyond your thinking mind.  I like to use improv games in my classes because when we can get into the mode of being silly and playful, away from our thinking and judging minds, we are in the moment, having fun and playing!  Really life is only fun when we are able to drop the judgements.

Think of what a different world we would have if we didn’t judge others. Now that isn’t going to happen. We will always have judgement. Many of our thoughts are judgements. It’s how we respond to them or not that is key.

Some days we will be able to not listen to the negative judgments and some days it will get the better of us. That is the nature of being human.

How do you deal with judgement? Comment below!

Fires and Forgiveness

Mother Earth has had plenty of challenges these past few weeks. With the flooding of Houston, the fires raging in the Northwest, and now an impending hurricane in Florida, there’s been a lot of stress.

It’s in these challenging times that we look beyond our political and religious views that have previously been divisive and come together as we focus on survival. Helping each other out in time of need. Because when it gets down to it, we all want the same things- love, security, safety, and health. It’s through the support of one another that we are able to get through these challenging times.

Here in Oregon, the big story of the week was that a 15 year old teen may be responsible for starting the Eagle Creek Fire after throwing fireworks into the dry forest. Over 30,000 acres have burned so far.

I keep thinking about this teen and how he must be feeling now. I would feel so horrible if I had done such a thing. Teens brains are still developing and their prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until their mid-twenties.  The teen brain is also wired for more risk taking behavior. You may ask, what is the biological function of that? This helps teens break away from the confines of their parents and starts the individuation process- of becoming an adult.

I’ve seen people attacking this kid on Facebook. It’s easy for us not involved to judge the teen or the parents- didn’t they teach him about fire safety? Or judge society- our kids are so disconnected from nature that they don’t know how to take care of it.

Putting judgement aside, what we really need when we make mistakes is compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and others. This kid will have choices in the aftermath of this. He can take what he’s learned and be stronger because of it and find a way to help others, or go down the dark path of worthlessness and destruction. He may get juvenile detention and decide he is reckless and act out. Or he may head down a darker path at first and find the light later as he matures.

If he can forgive himself and see the lesson learned, then he’s going to be okay. If he doesn’t forgive himself, well… it will be harder to move on.

I feel grateful that that wasn’t my teen that did that. But it could have been any of our teens.

All kids need a place where they can learn and receive compassion and support from each other. If you have a middle school daughter in Portland, I’d invite you to check out my upcoming class:

What does empowerment mean?

I put my heart and soul into my camps and classes. This is not just a job for me, it’s a calling. I’m always looking for “answers.’ I read tons of books and take courses, but there’s this sense in me that I really haven’t found what I’m looking for.

The girls get involved in incredibly complicated scenario’s. Many of which there is no clear answer. Parenting is the same way right? 

Here’s some examples:

  • “A friend of mine is really ____ (clingy, annoying, mean, etc) and I don’t want to hang out with her anymore. What do I do? I don’t want to hurt her feelings.”
  • “I don’t like how my ‘friend’ is treating me and I don’t want to hang out with her anymore. We have been friends for a long time and my mom wants me to continue to be friends with her.”
  • “I have 2 friends I love to hang out with but they don’t like each other. I like both of them and they each complain about the other to me and I feel caught in the middle.”

When I am stuck in my ego perspective, I want to be able to come up with some amazing solution that will fix these problems. I would love to be able to wave a magic wand and make it all better. 

However, I believe the best answers come from within, from this inner knowing we each have inside us. It takes practice to access and hear it.  Each situation is unique and different feelings are involved. I can’t possibly know everything involved in the situation and there’s no “right” answer I can give them. 

How many times have you looked for the ‘right’ answer to solve a situation in your life or your children’s?

I was listening to my favorite podcast by Christine Hassler, Over it and On With it, when she talked about Empowerment comes from within. We feel most empowered when we get to our own answers rather than someone telling us. 

Typical female behavior is to ask other friends for help. This can be helpful but also can invite negative  judgement of the person being talked about. It’s  fine to talk with others about the situation, but I’m saying the final decision on what to do should come from the individual, not from others. Parents too! I’m certainly guilty of  telling my daughter what to do in a particular situation, and it backfired!

My goal is to help young women find their inner voice and wisdom so they can express themselves authentically. It’s not about me fixing them. They are not broken  but also there isn’t anything I can do or say that will solve their problem. I am there to facilitate potential insight. 

Do you like receiving advice and then do you go do it? I do not like being given advice. I do like encouragement and I like it when people ask me questions. However this doesn’t happen very often and thus this is what I do in my classes.

This summer, when I started  camp, I felt like I had a certain expectation of what empowerment “should” look like- standing up for yourself, knowing your needs and wants, etc. At the end of each week, when the girls were sharing, I found that empowerment came from the girls being vulnerable, connecting with each other and knowing they were not alone in their feelings.  They were able to find their own answers. Together we had created a safe place for people to express themselves and the girls were so supportive of each other. I expanded my concept of what empowerment looked like.   Just like my tagline says, empowerment through connection. So true!

6 Tips on Traveling with Teens

traveling, teens

Enjoy the beauty even if your kids don’t!

My husband was on sabbatical last summer, so to take advantage of his extra time, he acquiesced to my calling I’ve had for the past couple of years to go to Ireland. My son wanted to go to London as he says “All the good writers and tv shows come from there.” (ie JK Rowling, Dr. Who, Sherlock,etc).

I didn’t realize how hard it was going to be traveling with teens. My daughter was going to be  13 soon and my son was 15.

My advice for traveling with teens?

Don’t do it.

Just kidding. But here’s a couple of mental shifts to make before you embark on this trip of a lifetime that I learned, that may be helpful to you.

1) Be open to learning what your kid likes or doesn’t like about traveling

My daughter loved the beautiful scenery of Ireland, the green countrysides, the beautiful cliffs and coastlines. My son said “Are we just going to drive around and look at stuff?’

“Um, Yes.”

My son loved the interesting museums in London with the different artifacts from war and the armory.

2) Try to balance everyone’s interests.

You are not going to please everyone at the same time on every activity, and that is okay. Sometimes you may want to split up and do your own thing. My daughter really wanted to go on the London Eye, but my son would rather go to the British Museum, so we each took a kiddo and did that.

Adults are included! In Ireland, my husband and I went out every night to the pubs to hear amazing musicians, while the kids were perfectly happy to stay ‘home’ and ‘chill.’ They were tired from the days activities and from what we saw, there weren’t any kids hanging out in the pubs.

3) Count on your teens wanting to sleep a lot!

We had several times when the kids were just exhausted. We all lost a full night’s sleep enroute to Europe so we were all running a deficit to start out with. Build in some down time into your itinerary.

4) Be prepared, bowel”s will probably get off schedule and there may be some back ups. Bring something to help ‘ease the transition.’

5) Watch the thoughts that are causing you stress.

If you notice the belief, “I’m paying all this money and they aren’t appreciating it!” Think of the long term gain. Travel provides experiences/challenges/ new perspectives that can make an impact on your child’s development. If you can let go of this belief, YOU are going to enjoy your time more.

6) Anxiety may increase.

If you have a family member that tends towards anxiety in new situations and tends to be a homebody, then be aware that he/she could get triggered and find traveling challenging. It’s okay, it’s good to stretch those comfort zones to increase confidence but can be challenging in the moment!

What have YOU learned on traveling with your teens?

13 Reasons Why- Are your kids watching this show?-please read

 

I just finished watching the new Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.  The show is about a high schooler named Hannah Baker who commits suicide. But before she does she records 13 sides of cassette tapes, 1 for each person that she felt played a part in her decision to commit suicide. The series shows teens having sex, masturbation, spreading rumors via pictures and words on cellphones, sexual assault, drinking, drugs, and suicide. It is graphic and some scenes are disturbing. I would highly recommend watching it with your kid if you decide that it is beneficial for them to watch.

I had decided that I wasn’t quite ready to expose my 13 and and 15 year old to the content yet. But then my middle school daughter came home and said “everyone” was talking about this show 13 Reasons Why.  I asked my freshman son and he said half of his health class was talking about it.

So if you’ve got a tween or teen I recommend you inquire what they may be watching on Netflix. This show is graphic, disturbing and brings up a lot of issues to discuss with your child. But it’s also intriguing and done in such a way you want to keep watching.

The other main character is Clay.  He is in love with Hannah but doesn’t let her know.  He is a good demonstration of how teens sometimes don’t know how to talk to their parents about their feelings and he is struggling inside.  Almost all of the characters don’t talk to their parents until near the end of the show when the parents find out that their teen actually knew Hannah.

Open communication with your teens is paramount to being able to support them. I know when I was a teen I didn’t talk at all to my parents about what was going on.  I want it to be different with my kids. Shows like this definitely provide a platform to talk about these important issues.

It is easier for both parents and teens to talk about these issues when it isn’t directly about them.

Through the lens of each character, we see each person’s struggle with the aftermath of Hannah’s suicide as they question their behavior and decisions.  You also get to see what it can be like for a teen to experience a lot of little mistreatments, that snowball and really impact Hannah’s mental state.

Should I let my child watch this show?

1) Your kid could be watching this show already because kids are talking about it. And you may not know she/he is watching it. Although I think it’s appropriate for teens to watch, I’m more UNcomfortable with middle schoolers watching it. However if they are going to sneak to watch it, it’s better to be there for them to discuss the issues than to forbid them from watching it.

2) The show brings up so many talking points/ questions that it is a great conduit to have some deep conversations with your kids. I recommend watching it with your kid if at all possible.

3) Every kid is different in their development. I recommend you use your intuition whether you think your child can handle watching it. Watch some of it yourself first. The first 3 episodes are fairly moderate. The show gets more intense after Episode 3.

As I write this I haven’t decided whether I want my 13 year old daughter to watch this yet. However she found the book online and started reading it.  My son hasn’t shown interest in it but I would let him watch it. I don’t think it is appropriate for 5th graders (They are stressed out about their transition to middle school!).

Warning: I was so into it I wanted to keep watching it. I found I became obsessed with it and couldn’t wait to watch more. Your child my invariably feel the same way.

Questions for discussion: Many questions don’t have a right or wrong answer. Life is messy and not in black and white. It’s more about the discussion and figuring out values.

  1. When is it okay to take pictures with your cell phone?
    If you take a picture that shows a compromising position, what should you do with it?
  2. How did the group of athletic boys treat each other? What masks (image they tried to project)  did they wear?
  3. Do you think Bryce thought about the consequences of texting that picture of Hannah to the entire school?
  4. What do you think Justin was struggling with regarding  his relationship with Bryce and Jessica after the scene at the party happened?
  5. How is Tyler’s experience like Hannah’s? He may be choosing to deal with it differently, and with dire consequences.
  6. Hannah saw her parents struggling with finances. At one point they talk about using her college fund.  Hannah held the belief “I am a burden to my family.” How else could she have interpreted her parents choice not to use her college fund to cover current expenses?
  7. What do you think Jessica Davis was feeling after she found out she was raped?
  8. What did you think of how Mr. Porter handled the last conversation with Hannah about rape?
  9. What does giving consent for sex look like?
  10. Is it okay for someone to change their mind about wanting sex in the heat of the moment?
  11. Why did Bryce think it was okay to do what he did?
  12. Drinking can cloud your judgement. What poor decisions did some of the characters make while drinking?
  13. Why did Hannah not tell anyone about the sexual assault?
  14. What would you do if you were sexually assaulted?
  15. The kids and adults had various opinions on whether they were or were not responsible for Hannah’s death. What do you think?
  16. Can you feel compassion for each character’s perspective? Do you believe people do the best they can in the moment? Do you have less compassion for some characters than others?

There are important points in this movie for both boys and girls.

Let me know your thoughts on this!

Sincerely,

Kim

My inner critic got the best of me!

April 9, 2017 By

Recently, I took a beginning class in Musical improv and I loved it. Remember Wayne Brady on Whose Line is it Anyways? I want to be able to make up songs on the spot like him! 

The instructor created a safe environment for us to explore.

First we experimented with our voices, singing all together, giving us the space to explore our voices without feeling self-conscious. Then we learned the structure of verses and choruses. Given a word from the audience, four of us would get on the stage and we’d take turns each making up a line of a song. 

I loved it! It was fun to see what came out of our mouths. Many times it was the most obvious, simple things that were the funniest, especially if the person really owned what they were doing. If you made a mistake you own it and you do it again so the next time it seemed like you planned it.

The components of class were light, fun, expressive, and safe.
 
THEN I took the intermediate/advanced level of the class.

And I didn’t feel safe anymore.

My inner critic voice amplified!

There was an additional instructor to this class. Upon walking in to the first class we were asked our favorite karaoke song I haven’t karaoke’d for about 25 years. My mind went blank. I couldn’t even think of my favorite Taylor Swift song that I play on the guitar. I had to look it up on my phone. My nerves and anxiety interrupted my ability to think! I chose Stay Stay Stay. 

In the beginning level class there were a few people that didn’t sing well and weren’t experts at improving, that made me feel better. In the advanced class, it was all people who had a lot of experience with improv.
 
I had immediately labeled myself as “The worst one.” I can feel okay in a class as long as I’m not “The worst one!” 

The first guy to perform, was a guy probably in his 50’s. Big stature, and he did “Like a Virgin” and he nailed it. He was so good! He owned what he was doing and totally went for it.

After we lip synched to our songs,  the teacher asked volunteers to come to the stage and make up an entire song on the spot (there are keyboards to do background music for you.).

Now that was way too much for me, I did not feel safe to do this.There wasn’t enough time for everyone to have a turn so I didn’t do it.

 When I say “safe”, in actuality I mean that my inner critic voice was going crazy and I didn’t feel ‘safe’ from my voice!!!

It’s not like the people in the class would say, “Wow, that really sucked! Better luck next time!”

I did not want to go to the next class. It was so scary for me.  The teacher would critique us, as that was her way of teaching. And she wasn’t mean, but I just had such a hard time handling it. I never went back to class.

My experience was similar to how middle schoolers often feel.

The volume of the inner critic voice turns way up in middle schools. They often compare themselves to others to see how they measure up.

Self-judgement and judgement of others is at an all time high. These kids need safety, a safe environment to explore using their voice and bodies in such a way that creates connection not disconnection. Learning self-compassion is key also.

If you’d like your daughter to experience a safe and inviting environment so she can get a handle on her inner critic voice then check out my upcoming class starting next week at OmBase (for middle schoolers)
and/or my summer camps (for middle and high school).

What’s been your experience with the inner critic voice? Can you relate to what your daughter is going through? Please comment below!
