The Consequences of Relational Aggression Among Our Sons & Daughters
“We’ve all heard ‘mean girl’ stories and many of us probably have lived them.

As researcher Adrienne Banny attests, it will take a concerted effort by parents, teachers and other caring adults to turn around this very disturbing trend!” -MomEnough TUNE IN HERE.
