Health and Wellness
We believe that a healthy family is a happy family and are putting efforts to increase the health and wellness of the Greater Brockton Area. On this page, we will be sharing information about health and wellness through articles, pictures and videos to promote healthy lifestyles.
Our top pick for the week is from U.S Department of Human and Health Services:
Encouraging School Success
“School activities such as parent-teacher conferences are important, but everyday actions at home also help teens succeed in school. OAH’s section on Talking with Teens about School Successes outlines 15 ways that parents can make a difference in their adolescents’ school lives, including setting aside time and space to study at home and asking about how classes are going. It also lists four conversation tips to help parents get started”.
Being Safe Online
“Adolescents use the Internet for a wide range of activities, including connecting with friends and learning new things. The Talking with Teens about Online Safety section gives parents eight steps to help their teens navigate the web, such as critiquing online information and discussing privacy concerns. Parents also can learn about four topics to cover when having these conversations. The Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect. Student Resources page provides tip sheets on topics such as mobile devices and cyber safety that are tailored for students of different ages”.
