Complaining that they've done it before. Saying its "too babyish". Turning up late and "forgetting" standard parts of unit life. Talking over leaders or wanting to question everything. Its not your fault- she's just grown out of being in that section before she can join the next section. Most girls move through the unit without many problems, but occasionally there is a girl or two who grow out of the unit before either they are old enough for the next section, or the next unit has a space. This can lead to a negative environment if left alone. What are your tips and stories for: Handling challenging behaviour from girls who are ready to move on but can't for whatever reason (back chat, lack of willingness to cooperate/join in, disregarding unit ethos, frustration from being the last in a friend group to move on) Preventing a negative environment from developing (younger girls copying behaviour, younger girls feeling intimidated, volunteers dreading each meeting for what it might bring) Ideas for each section on small jobs, tasks or roles ideal for older girls that aren't being a sixer/PL And: Do you feel that it is ever fair/ appropriate to suggest that a girl has a term or so out before the next section- or will it just lead to them leaving Guiding?
