Justin West, School Counsellor
Two weeks ago, I facilitated a workshop on ‘Parenting your Middle Schooler’. I talked about the stage of development in adolescence and what to expect as children transition into adolescence and enter the first stage - ‘Early Adolescence’. Parents from Years 5 to Years 8 attended. It was a lively session - lots of laughs and sharing of experiences of some of the delights and challenges of living and working with young people making the transition from childhood into adolescence.
