2nd Annual Teens and Transitions Panel
The transition from middle-school to high school can be a difficult one for teens. There’s no field guide to this transition, and every child experiences the process differently. What’s normal? What’s not? When should you seek help? How can parents help their kids succeed?
Parents of middle-school aged children can find answers to these questions at a free, panel discussion — Teens and Transitions — Tuesday, May 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Edgewood Middle School Auditorium.
Experts with first-hand experience in our community will lead the discussion, including a high school counselor, psychiatrist and social worker. The panel will address issues kids encounter as they transition to high school including social and educational challenges, academic expectations and support, drinking, drugs and meds, triggers and signs of stress and depression, when to seek help, and resources available in our community for helping kids cope.
