Bridge the Gap Between Home and School
Educators know what parents are concerned about—their children’s mental & emotional well-being.
Pew Researchers confirmed what you already know – The top concern of parents today is children and teens “Struggling with anxiety or depression.”
(Pew Research Center, January, 2023, “Parenting in America Today,” study of 3757 parents)
Educators are already focused on caring for students’ well-being.
How can you get parents on board with you in a practical and positive way?
