 #6 Getting to Know a Girl Scout Daisy (continued)



  1. Minnie Mouse Time – Talking allowed only in polite little whispers
  2. Change Activities! – Often, girls are trying to tell you they are ready to move on to the next activity.
  3. Positive Rewards – Give stickers for the desired behaviors
  4. Sit and Watch – Have girls sit out for awhile if they are disruptive or being overly sensitive – don’t stop the whole group.
  5. Keep Your Cool – Above all, stay calm and consistent. Handle problems matter-of-factly.
  6. Ignore Bothersome Behavior – Sometimes behavior is attention-getting. Ignore it if you can.
  7. Sit Next to a Girl! – Sometimes sitting next to a rambunctious girl can help her settle down.
