Teen Milestone: Graduating from School
Graduation ceremonies may be penciled onto your calendar by school administrators, but reaching that milestone—whether it’s middle school or high school—is your teen’s accomplishment. Schools mark these occasions with big fanfare because they know how much effort goes into reaching the moment. It’s also a time for you, the parent, to reflect on how your child has grown and changed. All of the quizzes, essays, sports games, and theater performances culminate in a young adult figuring out who they want to be. Take graduation as a time to look backward and forward.
