  • The Nest 1221 Southwest 27th Avenue Suite 301 Miami, FL, 33135 United States

The transitions from Elementary to Middle School and Middle School to High School can be jarring.  We know that with these transitions most tweens/teens need to try on different personas, social groups, and emotional responses, all of which are confusing to their well-intentioned parents.  This workshop will  help participants process the changes and make choices about how to assist their children in their new school settings and in the years leading up to college.  The panel will include parents of middle and high-schoolers who have completed the process successfully, a middle and high school teacher who can provide facts on education, and a developmental expert and psychotherapist to address the emotional and neurological shifts in this age group.  Topics we will discuss:

·         Expectations andfamily values to hold in this transition

·         Fears, worries, and concerns about this transition

·         Development – educational, neurological and emotional
