Students of Marin Academy's Peer Resources group invite parents and students to an evening of conversation as an exploration of the teen experience. Participants share insights regarding what it's like to be a teen or to be the parent of a teen. The goal of the evening is to enhance communication and understanding between the two generations through dialogue. The discussions shed light on the joys and obstacles each group faces, while providing a better understanding of what life is like for, and with, a teenager.
The evening begins with a series of monologues and dialogues performed by the Peer Resources group that highlight different aspects and issues of teen life. Topics presented in the past have included stress, social isolation, sexual identity, race, class, trust, changing relationships with parents and peer pressure. The performances are followed by small group discussions led by members of Peer Resources; students and parents (not their own) then explore topics that were presented in the monologues, discussions that have been known to be quite lively! As always, a special thanks to David Sinaiko, Theater teacher, who is an integral part of Communications Evening.
