Parenting Right in the Middle is a series for parents of tweens, grades 5 through 8. By providing education, tools and gathering space, this project will help parents move beyond crisis mode and into a more positive and intentional approach to parenting. This project supports a positive, practice-based approach to parenting that will develop essential internal strengths in parents and kids, and help parents learn to limit, love, listen and laugh.

It is presented by the Bainbridge Island School District, Hyla Middle School, and Raising Resilience, and is funded by a grant from the Bainbridge Community Foundation.
