Queens In Training Treat Us As Such

Healing Through It Summit: 

Queens in Training Treat Us As Such!

A Cherlnell Lane, LLC Production

Register at bit.ly/queensintraining

Description

Unhealthy Relationships (both romantic and platonic) are happening to our girls at younger and younger ages. They are entering into these relationships at an alarming rate. Girls and young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence — almost triple the national average. Unhealthy behavior typically begins between the ages of 12 and 18. Cherlnell Lane, LLC has created this summit as an educational experience for girls in 5th to 8th grade. Where they will learn the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. The ladies will learn ways to prevent entering into an unhealthy relationship. They will learn they have a voice and how to use it. So, if placed in that situation they can speak up for themselves. Then last but not least the princesses will learn through self-esteem and self- love activities they are Queens in training and therefore required to be treated in a certain way. That doesn't include being in an unhealthy relationship.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be served.

We will also have a surprise for the girls.

In order to make the young ladies comfortable, there will be no parents allowed.
