In partnership with the Wilton Library and Wilton High School Parent Teacher Student Association, Wilton Youth Council is hosting a program called “The College Process: Supporting Your Teen and Finding the Right Fit” on Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 10-11:45 a.m. at the Wilton Library. This free event is intended for parents of students in grades 9-12; all are welcome.
The college process can often feel like a frenzy but there are ways to manage it that foster resilience and relationships rather than discord and despair. Please join Susan Bauerfeld, Ph.D and Deena Maerowitz, J.D., M.S.W. to learn tips, strategies and suggestions for reducing stress, staying connected to your child, and managing the process with greater ease and comfort . You will feel better and your teen will thank you!
