Healthy Tips

Elementary School: 5-10

The elementary school stage is probably scarier for parents than children – your baby is growing up! With this new-found independence comes a lot of firsts – some that can be even more exciting than their first steps!

Middle School: 11-14

The transition from elementary school to middle school is drastic – kids now may change classrooms/teachers for each subject. Grades are becoming more important and they have to be more independent. How can parents help?

High School: 15-17

People have fond and not-so-fond memories of high school, but they are all a part of the process of growing up and becoming an independent adult. It also is a time to prepare for the next step of their education and/or begin a career. Although it is full of high-stake decisions, it also can be full of fun and laughter.
