The Westford Parent Connection is celebrating its fourteenth anniversary during the 2014–2015 school year. The WPC was formed in 2001 to provide Westford parents and guardians enrichment and educational events to help address a variety of social and emotional issues pertaining to their children's development. The WPC works collaboratively with groups throughout the community, to ensure we address the right topics at the right time. We are grateful for the support from the Westford Public Schools, the Westford Health Department, the Roudenbush Community Center, the Westford Elementary PTO, and the Westford Middle School PTO. To learn more about the organization, contact WPC President Mary Anne Seraphin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Do Healthy Teen Relationships Look Like?
Join us Wednesday, November 5th
The dating lives of today’s young people look vastly different than what was considered normal a generation or two ago. Technology plays a part, of course. Parents are unaware of so much of what happens in their kids’ lives because of technology, and the ways in which kids now communicate. How can parents be sure their teens are safe, particularly within their intimate relationships?
Join Maria Crooker, from Alternative House in Lowell, as she presents What Do Healthy Teen Relationships Look Like? on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. at the Stony Brook Middle School, 9 Farmer Way, Westford. [Please note the earlier start time.] Unfortunately, too many teens experience dating violence. The abuse can be physical, sexual, or emotional, and can often go undetected. Maria will explain teen dating violence, and will then provide ways in which teens can protect themselves.
