We have upcoming events to help you navigate the challenges of raising children and teenagers!

Raising children and teenagers is no easy feat! Every generation is different, the pressures and stresses of life change, and how you work with one child is different than how you have to work with another. With all the shifting dynamics, it is no wonder why we sometimes wish our kids came with an owner’s manual when they are born!

We may not have that owner’s manual, but at St. Mark’s we are working diligently to provide parents with more resources. To name a few, on Tuesday, October 1, we will have a speaker coming in to talk to our Lower School Families. The following week, on Tuesday, October 8, a speaker will come for Middle School families. There will be more details as we approach those dates.

A big event coming to St. Mark’s is the First Annual Parenting Symposium put on by The Conative Group on Saturday, October 5, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. This 3-hour symposium will be led by therapists and school counselors from the community, equipping you with techniques that can take your parenting to the next level! St. Mark’s is thrilled to host this symposium for the community. As a St. Mark’s family, you will receive 50% off registration. To find about more about this symposium and register, click here. Please bring all completed registration to Ms. Cofield at the front desk. If you have any questions about this event, please send me an email; I’d be delighted to speak with you.

I look forward to seeing you all there!

God Bless,

Elise N. Banks, M.S., LPC
