Parent Education

Dear High School Seniors, Over the next few months, if you sense your mom (or parent) just looking at you, go ahead and carry on with whatever you’re doing. It’s fine. (They are) just trying to store you up.  – Guilty Chocoholic Mama for Grown and Flown
Congratulations parents/guardians and teens for being so close to the end of the academic year! And congratulations to our graduating seniors!  We can all almost say it’s another year done. Take care of your teens and yourself this upcoming week- your teens may be feeling stressed and overwhelmed, especially given all we have been through this year, so the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your teens will be loving validation (finals are A LOT!) and perspective (although it may feel like it, that grade will NOT determine your happiness and joy in life). Take a walk with your teen in nature, give them a hug if they need, have some dark chocolate or a good laugh, and remind them that this too shall pass. In the end, you will keep moving forward to the next thing, together.
Finally, if your teen is struggling with academics or feeling down or frustrated about school, don’t forget to connect with our Counselors, our Nurse, and our Wellness Center. Connection and belonging are critical to a teen’s well-being, as well as ours, and will help us all feel more resilient.
