Resources for Teens & School Transitions
Middle School and high school tend to be times of high stress and great fun for most teenagers. Both increased responsibility and increased independence create a whole new environment that adolescents have to learn to navigate. This page provides information for you as a parent on how to help your child through the highs and lows of school transitions.
- Resources for Parents: This National Education Association (NEA) Web site provides information for parents on why parental involvement is so important in a child's education. It includes helpful tips on how to get involved as well as useful links to other sources.
- Parents' Resource Center: The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools' Web site provides two types of information. Learn Now is a Web portal that provides valuable links to parent-friendly resources on child and adolescent health issues. In contrast, Act Now is a guide written by CHHCS to help parents assess health-related services and programs at their child's schools.
