Exploring the Dawn of Adolesence
A talk hosted by Parent Council
"You see, I want a lot. Perhaps I want everything. The darkness that comes with every infinite fall and the shivering blaze up." -Rainer Maria Rilke The Parent Council of the Eugene Waldorf School is hosting Nettie Fabrie, Dutch educator and lecturer, for a talk on the approach of adolescence. She will explore what is changing in the twelve year old and what needs to change in the adults around them to support this change. What are they looking for twelve year olds looking for and how can we provide this for them? The talk will be held on Monday, November 10 at 7:00 pm at the Eugene Waldorf School, 1350 McLean Blvd. in the grade six classroom A sliding scale donation is asked of $5-$10.
