Parents you are the most important piece in a teens story as he/she begins to mature into an adult. And we know the work is great, we also know it can be very challenging. Our goal is not to tell you what to do, but rather share insights, and provide you tools to help you on your journey.
We started special parent evenings built around sharing the content we have received from students who completed a simple statement ‘ Things I wish my Parents knew…’. And we have provided some tools below to help you continue to build a better relationship with your teen.
