The Irvington PTSA in partnership with the Irvington Union Free School District is excited to host two live Zoom events with Judith Warner, a New York Times best-selling author of “And Then They Stopped Talking to Me: Making Sense of Middle School”
Through the stories of kids and parents in the middle school trenches, Warner reveals why these years are so painful, how parents unwittingly make them worse, and what we all need to do to grow up. With deep insight and compassion, Warner walks us through a new understanding of the role that middle school plays in all our lives and argues that today’s helicopter parents are overly concerned with status and achievement—in some ways a residual effect of their own middle school experiences—and that this worsens the self-consciousness, self-absorption, and social “sorting” so typical of early adolescence.
We're hosting two events, tailored to your family's needs:
