On February 10th, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel visited with Working on Womanhood (WOW) students to wish them well on their upcoming trip to Washington, DC. A frequent B.A.M. circle guest, Mayor Emanuel embraced Youth Guidance staff and stated: “This is great…although I’m cheating on my BAM homies!” He proceeded to openly share with the students, giving a personal P.I.E.S. check-in, expressing his excitement for the girls’ upcoming trip, and engaging in a candid discussion about positive anger expression. When asked the best way to respond when conflict arises, he gave this advice: “Sometimes people are only testing and pushing you with the hope of making you angry and upset. The best thing you can do is not give them what they want.”
