Join the Conversation. Participate in the first Middle Level Parent Institute supporting our parents of young adolescents. Research shows that when parents are involved students have: higher grades and graduation rates, better school attendance, increased motivation & better self-esteem, lower rates of suspension, decreased use of drugs & alcohol, and fewer instances of violent behavior.
Enjoy the keynote speech from Rosalind Wiseman, bestselling author, teacher, and media spokesperson on bullying, ethical leadership, the use of social media, and media literacy. Wiseman is in constant dialogue and collaboration with educators, parents, children, and teens.
Rosalind is the author of Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World—the groundbreaking, best-selling book that was the basis for the movie Mean Girls. Her latest book, Masterminds & Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World was published in September 2013.
Then participate in two breakout sessions that address a variety of topics relevant to adolescent parents.
Participants will receive an email that will contain a separate registration for individual workshops.
