Finding Kind Assembly a Success
Friday, September 18 Daniell school counselors hosted
a Finding Kind
Assembly for all girls in grades 6 - 8. The assembly consisted of viewing the documentary
and participating in a group activity following the
movie. Girls discussed the effects of girl-against-girl
bullying, how they can work together to change this
behavior, and took the KIND
Kind, filmmakers Lauren
Parsekian and Molly Thompson set out in a cross country
journey of discovery and education. Interviewing women
and girls along the way about their lives and
experiences, Parsekian and Thompson find, among all of
the unique personal stories, some universal truths about
growing up as girls.
Finding Kind is a document
of that journey, and of the filmmakers’ quest to take
these experiences and find a common ground of kindness
and mutual respect.
