Transitions In the Middle School Years: Supporting Your Middle School Student During This Intense Period of Developmental Change
Presented by Rick Irving, MSW (one of CPT’s most popular presenters!)
Date/Time: Wednesday evening September 11, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM
Location: Sanborn Middle School Auditorium, 835 Old Marlboro Road, West Concord
Free and open to all interested adults, especially parents, grandparents and caregivers!
This presentation is a collaboration between the Center for Parents and Teachers and the Concord Health Department through generous funding by Healthy Concord.
As children face normal (and even unexpected) transitions in their lives, such as this intense one of moving into and through middle school, there are ways we as parents/grandparents can provide supports and reassurances that will assist the child to move forward in a smooth way. Join us as we discuss effective approaches that offer children of middle school age support and stability in the midst of so much change. Share concerns and questions and come away with concrete ideas to help foster children’s resiliency during this “roller coaster”stage of development.
