Dear MBMS Families,

The goal of the MBMS Families Connected Web site is to provide a comprehensive place to go to check out all resources related to health and wellness for our middle school children. This includes: resources for preventing the onset of drinking and drug use, ways to deal with stress, anxiety , and tips and guides for handling social media and technology.  In addition, there is a wealth of articles, blogs, and community events on the website.

Even though we all may parent differently, we need each other and we need to stay connected to keep our kids safe! This is a place to come to feel like you are not alone in saying “no” to your children, especially when they may say, “all the other parents are letting their kids do it”.  Furthermore, our goal is not to judge each other, but to just back each other up, support each other and share information.

We hope you will take advantage of these resources and share some of the ideas from here with your children and your friends. We also hope you will check out the events section and join us at a speaker series or book club.

Please feel free to contact either of us with questions or ideas that you may have for our MBMS families connectedness!

Sincerely,

Lisa Hardimon (lmhardimon@gmail.com)
