Join psychologist and facilitator Deborah Weinstock-Savoy and fellow parents for this four-session series exploring many changes that occur during adolescence, and how they affect relationships at home and school. Discuss relevant top-ics such as promoting healthy choices, setting realistic limits and appropriate consequences; understanding when and how to negotiate; dealing with changes and crises (e.g., divorce); identifying risk factors for anxiety and depression; handling experimentation with sex, alcohol, drugs, and learning to “let go” while maintaining family connections. Suggested donation $20 for the series. Financial assistance available. (Note: A group for parents of high school students will be starting Feb. 26, 2013. Registration will be available later this Fall.) For registration information go to The Freedman Center website.  More information available at The Newton Partnership website.
