Connecting with other parents
Connecting with parents similar to your self can be a great support.
Here are some things you can do to connect with people and groups in your community:
School’s Parents’ Association
Get in touch with your teenager’s school’s parents’ association and think about getting involved. It is a great way to meet other parents. Also, getting involved in your child’s school is a good message to your teenager that you are interested in them and their education. We know that when parents get more involved in their child’s education, they will do better in school.
If there is no parents’ association in your teenager’s school you might consider setting one up yourself with a group of parents.
