4th to 9th grade caregivers and educators: Mark your calendars as parenting expert and author, Miichelle Icard, presents “Fourteen Talks by Age Fourteen” based on her best-selling book! From Michelle’s website: “The fourteen essential conversations to have with your tween and early teenager to prepare them for the emotional, physical, and social challenges ahead, including scripts and advice to keep the communication going and stay connected during this critical developmental window. Trying to convince a middle schooler to listen to you can be exasperating. Indeed, it can feel like the best option is not to talk! But keeping kids safe—and prepared for all the times to come when you can’t be the angel on their shoulder—is all about having the right conversations at the right time. And from a brain growth and emotional readiness perspective, there is no better time for this than their tween years, right up to when they enter high school.” This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
