SMS Parents,

It sure is nice to have a dry and warm week.  Lookout!  Next week looks cooler, but at least it should be dry.  I am sure that all of us need a break from rain.

This week, I would like to focus again on a website that I believe would be very helpful to any parent.  I would suggest that you investigate and research this site, www.verywell.com .  There is an article on this site and the link is https://www.verywell.com/middle-school-kid-guide-for-parents-3288459 .

This article, “Your Middle School Kid”, has many links to other information about tweens and teenagers that may be helpful as you work with your child.  Some of the topics under this article include:

  1. Middle School Kids are Complex
  2. Middle School Kids Struggle with Peer Pressure
  3. Self Image is Huge with Preteens
  4. Middle School Kids are Developing Interests
  5. Tweens Fear Social Rejection

At the bottom of the article, you will find more information to explore such as:

  1.  Common Issues Your Middle Schooler May Be Facing and How to Help
  2. Understanding the Changes Your Child Will Face in Middle School
  3. Traps Your Child Should Avoid in Middle School
  4. Middle School Friendships Can Be Very Challenging
  5. The Developmental Needs of Today’s Middle School Students

These are a few of the topics that can be found on this site.  Please take an in-depth look when you have an opportunity.                          

Thanks for reading and have an amazing weekend!

Keith Griffin, Principal
