Play the Game:

Jerky Johnny can be played two ways:
1. Role-play with a friend. Players act out the scene & learn assertiveness skills.
2. Try & guess the Danger Sign(s) in the situation. Danger Signs teach you to recognize common traits of a predator.

head Sample Jerky Johnny Card:
Your boyfriend always takes you to places he wants to go. Even for your birthday he took you to a concert, but it was his favorite band-- not yours. His behavior upsets you & you want to tell him.

Role-play the scene.
You may say:
“I don’t feel respected in this relationship. I need you to show an interest in the things I want to do too.” (Someone who doesn’t take an interest in the things you like to do is telling you that they don’t care about you. You want to be with someone who treasures you, & appreciates your interests as well.) Danger Sign: Controlling

janeredlips 9.56.05 PM Sample Jerky Jane Card:
A guy at school surprised your sister with an expensive heart necklace for her birthday. She feels uncomfortable that he gave it to her because they are only friends. She says every day he comes over to see if she’s wearing the necklace & if not, he makes her feel guilty about it. You want to help her.

Role-play the scene.
You may say:
“He is using this gift to control you. You need to tell him that you can’t accept it & give it back to him.” You should be wary of someone that you don’t know well that gives you expensive gifts. They usually expect something in return. Danger Signs: Controlling or Instant Head Over Heels
