Social/Emotional Resources

Remember when you were a first-time parent of a small baby and you read articles and books to figure out what was developmentally normal? After over a decade of parenting by the time students reach high school, we often forget that there are many new and exciting milestones during the teenage and early adult years as well. We may have stopped reading about how to parent but we likely still have those days of thinking "Is this behavior NORMAL?!" So, the GMHS Counselors have compiled some resources for you to continue to learn, discuss, and grow alongside your student.
