Date:9/5/2007

ly meetings to check in with your child's

activities, encourage them to share their experiences and help them

In fact, a child's entry into middle school marks a critical juncture -- a time when parents need to be aware of their child's new surroundings and the pressures that come with exposure to new peers and social situations.
