Middle School Makeover by Michelle Icard will be our next book. The book helps parents, teachers, and other adults in middle school settings to understand the social dilemmas and other issues that kids today face. Author Michelle Icard covers a large range of topics, beginning with helping us understand what is happening in the brains of tweens and how these neurological development affects decision-making and questions around identity. She also addresses social media, dating, and peer exclusion.
Margot Parker, social emotional wellness expert, former MBMS Assistant Principal and longtime counselor, will be facilitating this engaging, hands-on discussion on parenting our middle school students. This is a great opportunity to reflect on our parenting practices, get ideas from each other, and learn new strategies in a fun, lively, discussion.
Books are available at Pages Bookstore in downtown Manhattan Beach. You need not have read the book to participate -- all are welcome!
