Great topics and engaging speakers discussing important issues facing parents today are part of the Hillview School Speaker Series. . Click here for this year’s line up. These events are open to all district parents and community members and take place in the Hillview Performing Arts Center. Free childcare is provided for all potty trained children.
The kick-off event — Raising Your Teens Without Losing Your Mind – Part 2 — with Hillview Principal Erik Burmeister is on Monday, Sept. 29th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
From mood swings, to puberty, to the complex life changes that are a result of growing up in the 21st century, raising a healthy and responsible teenager is a task that can boggle the mind of even the most seasoned caregivers.
Burmeister discusses the difference between how girls and boys react to their changing physical and emotional environments, the way in which our daily routines can affect how our kids grow and perform in and out of the classroom, and the boundaries and limits we can expect to have challenged as our kids strive to become more independent.
