A thought for our parents: SHIFTS

Parents:
Around ages 11, 12, and 13, shifts occur in kids’ thinking. Keep them engaged in school and learning. Encourage their curiosity. Many are strongly influenced by friends; so if they have friends who only want to socialize and not learn, emphasize the importance of having friends and working hard to learn.

TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD DREAMS.
