INSIGHT into the ADOLESCENT PSYCHE
  • By 8th grade students dont always share their
    thoughts with their parents. Friends replace
    parents for support. Be there anyway!
  • Keep lines of communication open between home and
    school and between you and your child. They
    really want you in their life.
  • Most of the time they are reluctant to ask for
    help! Use your spider senses to second guess
    what they are thinking! When in doubt, call us!
