Being a teenager has never been easy, but today adolescents experience more stressors than ever: to do well in school, be popular with peers, gain the approval of parents, make the team, be cool, and on and on. Some may also be worried about a parent being out of work or family financial problems, or be dealing with their parents’ divorce or alcoholism or mental illness in the family. Despite these pressures, it’s important to remember that most teenagers develop into healthy adults. Mattituck High School is offering parents an opportunity to learn more and discuss these issues with Dr. Xavier Amador on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in the high school library.
Belated happy birthday to Susie Smith.
