    Tips for parents of high school students:

    - Be aware of any shifts in mood, eating patterns, academic
    performance, peer groups, and body presentation.
    - Regularly communicate your love and support, and
    encourage your child to discuss with you anything that might
    be troubling them.
    - Encourage your child to create a vision board that outlines
    his/her goals, aspirations, dreams, and plans.
    - Encourage them to develop organizational tools for school
    work and for vision board goals.
    - Encourage your child to develop positive relationships with
    peers outside of their core peer group.
    - Maintain open communication and dialogue free of bias and
    judgment with your child about current events. Gauge their
    understanding and perception of the plight of others.
    - Explore with your child their use of social media. Discuss the
    advantages and disadvantages of an active social media
    presence as an adolescent.
    - Encourage your child to become involved in school clubs,
    organizations, athletic teams, and community service
    projects.
    - Clearly define your expectations of academic engagement
    and performance throughout the school year. Help your child
    to understand and follow school rules and policies.
    - Communicate regularly with your child’s teachers. Be an
    active partner with the school community.
    - Teach your child to assemble their “village” of people who
    support and encourage their success. These individuals may
    be peers, family members, neighbors, church members, and
    past or current teachers.
