Hebe Schafer, social worker at H.B. Whitehorne Middle School, is rolling out a new series of lectures designed to help the parents of children in middle school, and the first presentation is this Thursday, January 5.

The Safety Net Parenting Lecture Series is an outgrowth of the Safety Net Project, a three-year collaboration between the HBW and the Mental Health Association, funded by The Partners for Health Foundation. The project’s goals are to enhance positive peer connections, improve students’ coping skills, support teachers’ efforts to provide a caring and academically challenging learning environment and to facilitate family access to community resources designed to support their needs.

The schedule for the parent lecture series is as follows:
January 5: “Understanding Your Child’s Social and Emotional Needs during Middle School”
February 2: “What If the Key to Success is Failure” (based on this New York Times article)
March 22:  “Put the Stress to Rest ”
April 12: “Letting Go – Successfully Launching Your Child”

The presentation will be held in the HBW Media Center from 7 to 8:15  p.m. For further information on The H.B.W. Safety Net project and the programs being offered for students and families, please contact Hebe Schafer, LCSW at (973) 571-6751 ext. 2031.
