Broken Arrow Public Schools is hosting a Parent Talk titled “It’s Not All in Your Head,” which will provide parents with helpful resources regarding their teenagers from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 15 at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center, located at 701 S. Main St.
Topics will include anxiety, depression, self-esteem and body image, peer pressure, destructive behavior and more. Representatives from Family and Children’s Services, Daybreak Family Services and the Parent Child Center of Tulsa will present helpful information and useful strategies.
“During this event, a panel of experts will provide a general overview of many topics that affect teenagers in today’s society,” Executive Director of Student Services Derek Blackburn said. “We hope to provide parents with important information about coping skills and some warning signs to watch for as they have conversations with their teens.”
Due to the sensitive nature of the topics, it is recommended that only parents or students in grades 6-12 attend.
