Recent events in Newton have heightened everyone's awareness about the stressors that American youth faces. Adults as well as students set high expectations, and we have measured success in terms of surpassing those expectations.
Wednesday evening, March 5, Jon Mettelman, an eminent psychologist of youth behaviors, will be presenting and discussing the ways to identify youth in stress, the ways to mitigate stressful factors, and how we as adults can help make our children's lives healthier and happier. Dr. Mettelmen will begin his presentation at 7:00 pm, Chenery Auditorium; and the event is open to anyone in the greater Belmont community interested in the topic. There will be ample time for discussion, and Dr. Mettelmen has vowed to be available afterwards for one-on-one comments and concerns. This opportunity is one that provides the community means to address how we can confront stressful living in the 21st century.
The event is sponsored by the Belmont Public Schools under the aegis of the School Department's Health and Safety Advisory Committee.
