Do you know the age that teens no longer need their parents to be involved with school? Correct answer: When they graduate. They may not need the same amount of hand-holding you gave during the elementary years, but teens still need you to be involved with their school life so you can help them advocate for themselves. Make sure you attend back-to-school nights and conferences, know each teacher’s preferred method for communication, and send them an email of appreciation from time-to-time. You’re all on the same team, working to help your teen achieve great things.
