Module 2: Coping With Teasing

Home » Module 2: Coping With Teasing


“Chester is a cartoon cat that is happy most of the time. Your kids will learn to be cool and not to be cold or hot. I liked it a lot” Evan H., student, Cold Springs School

Teach your students Conflict Resolution with the three choices they have in responding to teasing… HOT, COLD, and COOL!

Teasing is a common problem among children. If not managed effectively, teasing may result in aggressive behavior, social withdrawal, and loss of self-esteem. Handled well, teasing can be a minor annoyance, which is easily stopped. This program presents four effective ways in which children can cope with teasing: Ignore It, Laugh It Off, Change The Subject, Ask The Teaser To Stop.

BeCool teaches students about the three basic ways we respond to teasing: Aggressively (HOT), Passively (COLD) or Assertively (COOL). In each of the video scenarios, children are challenged by a difficult person or situation. Your students will watch as their video peers hesitate and then model three different ways to respond to conflict: Giving Up (COLD), Blowing Up (HOT) or Staying in Control (COOL).

In this module you students will watch Jason and George cope with the hurtful teasing from older kids in a very public place, a video arcade. Your students will identify with their discomfort as they try to learn a new video arcade game while being relentlessly teased and taunted. They have three ways to react; your class will see where each of the choices takes them. In another vignette they will see Danny deal with teasing from the kids in his class when he shows up at school wearing his new glasses. In the third story your students will learn from Amy how to use the 4-Step Plan to stop the hurtful teasing from her older brother. They will see her successfully set firm limits with him. This vignette once again underscores the problems with a COLD or HOT response to teasing. This usually results in more teasing and loss of self-esteem.

The BeCool Paradigm is research based and truly works.
