LA GRANGE – The Lyons Township High School community is invited to attend a parenting presentation, Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety, at 7 p.m. Sept. 19 in the North Campus Reber Center, 100 S. Brainard Ave., La Grange. Admission is free.
The presentation will discuss the world children are navigating and how it is so radically different than it was even a few years ago. Teens are psychologically and emotionally burdened by social media, unreasonable academic and social stressors and an unprecedented stream of information.
Presenter Dr. John Duffy will cover the issues and challenges parents will face with their children, teens and young adults. Duffy is a La Grange-based clinical psychologist, author, podcaster and parenting and relationship expert. He has been working in his clinical practice with individuals, couples, teens and families for nearly 25 years.
