Bobcat Parents & Families,
When my kids were younger it was simpler to talk with them about important issues like fairness, boundaries, and human rights. Now that they are getting older, they are learning for themselves the kind of people they want to be through their own experiences. I hope you will take the opportunity to talk to your student about these same topics and understand their perspectives. These days I learn much more from them than they do from me.
