Prospective parents are invited to join the Saint Thomas Academy parent community on Tuesday, November 2 at 6:00 p.m. in the Court. RSVP Here!
Dr. Jules Nolan will be presenting This is Your Brain on Adolescence. The topic focuses on the adolescent brain and how changes in the brain affect thoughts, perceptions, feelings, behavior, school performance, and family relationships. Parents will better understand the workings of the teenage brain and how development at this stage influences the way they learn and behave during these years. Topics will include the neurobiology of brain development and the resulting feelings and behaviors including risky behaviors, mental health concerns, cheating, perfectionism, academic learning, and family relationships. Parents will learn concrete strategies for effective parenting during this critical stage of development.
