Teens and Transitions
Join Rebecca’s Dream at a Community Panel Discussion on May 5th!
As the academic year draws to a close, there’s a sense of excitement in the air as middle schoolers prepare to transition to high school. It’s a time of joy and excitement, but also of apprehension for students and parents. There are schedules to fill out, decisions to be made, and a realization as parents, that their children are taking a major step towards adulthood.
There’s no field guide to this transition, and every child experiences the process differently. What’s normal? What’s not? How can parents help their kids succeed?
Rebecca’s Dream will help parents find answers to these questions at a free, panel discussion for Middle School parents, Tuesday, May 5th at 7:00 p.m. at Edgewood Middle School, 929 Edgewood Road, Highland Park.
This discussion, led by experts with first-hand experience, including the former head of the counseling center at HPHS, a former DHS counselor, practicing psychiatrist, social worker, and a middle school principal, will address issues kids encounter as they transition to high school and help parents identify resources that can help them navigate in their new world.
If you have a middle-school aged child, join us for this important discussion. If you do not have kids in middle school, please share this information with others who will benefit by attending. Help us spread the word.
