758 Marrett Road Lexington, MA
Cutting, bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, depression and suicide have all seen huge spikes over the past 10 years. This is not typical child behavior, but a national epidemic, as our kids of all ages suffer the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual damages from stress. In many communities, families and children suffer in silence. It has left us grappling with the question, "Why?"
This presentation focuses on the problems, the fallout, and some questions we need to ask ourselves, along with providing hope and answers. This frank, factual and inspirational presentation on the state of our youth in our communities is geared for parents, administrators, coaches and all those concerned with our children's well-being.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC PLEASE RSVP
