Attention Parents of 6th Grade Girls-DEMO:

Set Your Daughter Up for Success!

Middle school is an important milestone. There is great anticipation, but great anxiety too. How will my daughter handle the new academic expectations? Will the pressure to fit in get the best of her? Will she get caught up in all the girl drama?

We’ve designed this special one-day program exclusively for 6th grade girls.

Help your daughter walk the halls of middle school with confidence! Our panel of experts will share the secrets to:
  • Organize for school success
  • Create good, meaningful friendships
  • Form a positive mindset
  • Stay true to herself
Parents: Be your daughter’s best supporter.
You play a critical role in your daughter’s emerging independence. To learn strong parenting tactics and help your daughter thrive during this time of transition, attend the special wrap-up session just for you.

Organizer of Middle School Made Easy
Sheri Gazitt, Teen Wise Founder, Teen Life Coach and Professional Speaker: As the GoGirlGo Seattle Director for the Women's Sports Foundation, I spent years working with teen girls.  Through this work, I was able to see the struggles that many of them faced with perfectionism, stress, and friendships.  This fueled me to create my company, Teen Wise. My continual motivation and passion for my work comes from my three teen daughters. They are my business consultants, my guides, my cheerleaders, and my critics, and keep me grounded in the issues that teens face every day.
