On Tuesday, May 2, the Glenbard Parent Series: Navigating Healthy Families will present "Middle School Superpowers: 12 Resilience Strategies to Help Tweens and Teens Reframe Setbacks and Gain Confidence" with author Phyllis Fagell.

Middle school can be unpredictable. Adolescence is a time of rapid physical, intellectual, social and emotional change. With advice from her most recent book, "Middle School Superpowers," Fagell returns to GPS to help adults teach young people the key skills they need to thrive and navigate their teenage years. She will cover making good friend choices, negotiating conflict, regulating emotions, advocating for oneself, recovering from setbacks and more.


Fagell is a licensed clinical professional counselor, parenting columnist in the Washington Post and author of the best-selling book "Middle School Matters: The 10 Key Skills Kids Need to Thrive in Middle School and Beyond and How Parents Can Help."

It will be offered at noon and 7 p.m. via Zoom. Go to for further information and the link to this webinar.
