  • Relax!

    Posted by AnnaGrace Baldwin on 5/6/2022

    As we enter into the last weeks of our school year, many of our teens may feel overwhelmed by final exams, end-of-year activities, and preparing for the summer. Encourage your teen to try relaxation techniques that help them calm down when they are feeling overwhelmed or stressed.
