Whether you are new to parenting teenagers/pre-teens or have had a few tries at it before, there’s something for each and every parent/guardian at McAuliffe’s 2016-17  Parenting Teenagers Speaker Series! Instead of being confused or frustrated by teenagers, let’s work together to bring the best out of them as they navigate the thick and thin of adolescence.

To support adult learning, McAuliffe and our Parent Teacher Group are hosting a fantastic slate of speakers to educate parents, guardians, educators, and friends of McAuliffe on topics that any one of us may grapple  with as we work with our middle and high school scholars.
