The Secret Lives of Teens & Tweens Parent/Caregiver Presentation

 Home & School and MTPS are bringing a dynamic and fun two-hour presentation by Minding Your Mind for parents and caregivers that actively focuses on what children in these age groups are really thinking, what they fear, why they do not share more, and how adults can effectively support the teens and tweens in their lives. This presentation covers areas such as depression and anxiety, social media and technology, suicide, ‘acting out’ behaviors, drug and alcohol use, and more. The program is designed for adults who love, live, and work with teens and tweens. It helps answer questions such as: 

  • What teens and tweens are really thinking

  • Why they don’t share their fears

  • How we can better support them

  • How we can become better parents or caregivers

Date: Wednesday, 11/29/23 6-8pm
