    Supporting Your Adolescent’s Re-Entry into School: Beyond the Academics
    Tuesday, September 14th, 6:30 pm

    This will be held over Zoom (link will be published closer to event)

    Join Annie Egan, founder of Worth Wellness, for an overview of adolescent development to help parents better understand how teens walk through their social-emotional worlds. Focusing on the unique set of challenges we are facing in this school year, Annie will offer relatable examples to help decode a teen’s behaviors, reactions, and decisions to increase effective communication and strengthen relationships. This talk is open to all parents; however, the content is geared towards parents of middle schoolers.
