Parents of High School Students:
Adults know changing circumstances are part of life. We recognize a change may not be such a bad thing and realize there can be all kinds of benefits from it. How can parents help teens perceive something intimidating as a challenge worth figuring out? Avoiding missteps isn’t realistic. Being open to change is. February’s Power of Choice newsletter looks at ways adults can model the attitude and behaviors it takes to positively handle change. Parents have the power to make choices too.
The Power of Choice produces podcasts throughout the school year supporting District 203 & 204 parents helping their teens to make healthy choices. To see the Parenting Stress and Mistakes as an Opportunity to Model Essential Skills, click on this link to listen.
