WESTFIELD First Congregational Church, 125 Elmer Street in Westfield, will host a teen “Limits Setting Workshop” on Sunday, November 15, at 7 p.m.
The program is designed to help middle and senior high students handle the demands of school, extracurricular activities, and family and friends.
The workshop was devised from a survey based on how young people handle stress in their academic, social and personal lives.
“One of the things we keep hearing is that kids have as much on their plates as their parents,” said Dave Mueller, Director of Family Life at the Westfield YMCA and a facilitator of the workshop. The pressures of getting into a competitive college, he notes, can push many students to overextend themselves.
The goal of the workshop is to help students learn to make choices and set personal limits. It will be conducted as a series of interactive exercises to foster discussion between teens and their parents.
The moderators of the program will be Mr. Mueller, the Reverend Pamela Gilchrist, Pastoral Associate of First Congregational Church, and the Reverend Dr. Dee Dee Turlington, Minister of Christian Education and Evangelism at the First Baptist Church of Westfield.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, please call (908) 233-2494.
