LMMHS will be hosting speaker Ashley Olafsen on Tuesday, September 3 starting at 6:30 pm in the Duffin Theater. Her topic of conversation will be: Bridging the Gap Between Parents and Teens: How to Help Students Navigate. A quick synopsis of her talk is below. Students and staff will be hearing from Ashley during the day, so this is a great opportunity to hear from the same speaker and initiate conversation at home. We hope you can join us!
In this interactive workshop by Ashley Olafsen, learn how to help your teenager navigate body image, friendships, social media, and mental health. Ashley will share insights on what teenagers may be struggling with, what teens wish their parents knew, and how parents can support their students during middle and high school. Participants will walk away with a better understanding on how to approach tricky conversations, and will have an opportunity to think critically about the best way to navigate their own relationships with their teenagers.
