Abstract
This video modeling DVD features real life social situations reenacted by children. This video recognizes that in order to be socially successful, children must learn to notice and "read" the social cues and messages that people use to communicate. Fitting In and Having Fun aims to stimulate a child's perception of social situations by visually showing them how to decode and interpret information from others. It also helps them to be more aware of their own body language and the messages they are sending. The target viewer is an elementary school-aged child who is ready to learn about the intricacies of social interactions. Social interactions are broken down, showing both the negative and positive consequences of how a child interacts and responds in social settings. As the child becomes aware of other people's perspectives, they can learn what to do differently to affect a better outcome. The social situations reviewed in the tape are: Being a tattletale; Dealing with disappointment; Taking a joke too far; Starting a conversation; Accepting help; Being bossy; Knowing when to end a conversation; Accepting criticism; Interrupting; Taking turns speaking in a conversation; Talking too loud; Embarrassing situations; and Dares.
