Know! To Define Racial Terms for Teens
Whether our youth are on social media, listening to music, or are streaming their favorite TV show, they are likely hearing highly influential musical artists, athletes, and other celebrities voicing their opinions on racism in America. A lot of terms are being used that we or our children might not be familiar with, which can cause mixed feelings and confusion. As we said in the previous tip, we, as parents and caregivers, must engage our children in ongoing conversations on this topic, and we must be their information filter, as young people may come to harmful conclusions about race and racism when it is not talked about openly and honestly. An important piece in building a foundation for constructive conversations around this subject is to first spend some time defining key terms.

Know! To Talk About George Floyd and Racism with Youth
The following Know! Parent Tip deals with the killing of George Floyd. It may be difficult for some parents to read. George’s death has affected all of us. Cultural diversity, competence, and humility is a foundational component to effective and impactful prevention services, and that mission cannot be fully realized while certain members of our communities are purposefully harmed by systems of oppression and violence that have been in place for far too long.

Know! You Are Not Alone
Summer fun for youth typically includes packed pools, backyard camping, fairs and festivals, sporting events, and lazy days spent simply hanging out—with their friends. This summer is unfortunately going to look and feel different for them and for us. Depending on where you live and the personal choices you’re making for your family, you and your children may fully be experiencing a shelter-in-place lifestyle, or you may be starting to reengage in slightly closer social interactions.

There is still a great deal of uncertainty, and differing opinions on how best to move forward, taking into account the physical and mental health wellness of ourselves, our children, and extended family members. There is no question however that our tweens and teens want and need social interaction, whether that means virtual hangouts with family and friends or getting together while staying six feet apart.

Know! To Examine YOUR COVID-19 Coping Skills
The world as we knew it has changed due to COVID-19. Even as governors talk about ending some social distancing protections, people’s physical, mental, and emotional health remain at risk. As a nation, we’ve been checking in, reaching out, and helping our families, friends, and complete strangers. The question is, have you checked in with YOURSELF? How are you feeling, and what coping strategies are you using to deal with this newfound or added anxiety, stress, and uncertainty for the future?

Some People are Coping with Alcohol

If you’re unlocking the liquor cabinet as a way to de-stress during these challenging times, you’re not alone. According to research conducted by Nielsen, alcohol sales have skyrocketed. In comparison to last year, in the week ending March 21, 2020:
U.S. alcohol sales increased 55%
Beer sales increased 42%
Wine sales increased 66%
Spirits sales such as tequila, gin, and pre-mixed cocktails increased 75%
Online alcohol sales increased 243%

How to Support Your Child’s Health and Well-Being During Ohio’s Ordered School-Building Closure
How to Support Your Child’s Social, Emotional and Behavioral Health

We know you and your child may be experiencing stress, confusion, fear or anxiety during this time. Below are some steps you can take to support your child.

Talk to Your Child about the Current Situation. Have age-appropriate conversations with your child and be sure all adults in the household are using the same language to describe what is happening. Be sure you understand the correct facts from medical and government resources. Share only developmentally appropriate facts with your child (see the links below for ideas about how to do this). Be calming to avoid cultivating anxiety or distress in your child.

Limit Exposure. Be mindful of adult conversations or media coverage about what is happening. Limit your child’s exposure to these as they could cause an increase in anxiety or distress in your child.

Know! To Reassure and Support Children During the COVID-19 Crisis
The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, a pandemic. Whether or not you believe the response to COVID-19 is proportionate, there is no doubt that children are being directly touched. Their schools are closing, their academic and extracurricular activities are being cancelled, their spring break family trips are being postponed, and restrictions are being placed on mass gatherings. They’re also seeing and hearing the vast concerns of some and outright panic of others as local and national leaders attempt to control the spread of the virus. 

Everyone is talking about coronavirus. The question is, are you talking about it with your children?

Coronavirus Update
In recent weeks, we have seen a rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 coronavirus throughout the world and the United States. With an increase in the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. and the possibility of an impact on the state of Ohio, the district would like to provide an update on how we are monitoring the situation.

The district has already seen a flu season that has impacted many students, staff members and families to date. As we do during any increased flu activity, the district takes precautionary measures to try and control the spread. Measures include regular reminders to our students to:

= Wash hands often with soap and water (at least 20 seconds).
= Cover their mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
= Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
= Stay home when sick and avoid contact with others.
= Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals.
= Practice good health habits.
= Avoid contact with others who are sick.
= Update your child’s emergency contact numbers in our student information system.

Know! The New Line of Nicotine Products Enticing Youth
You’re likely familiar with the dangers of vaping, especially among youth. Juul and other electronic cigarettes came onto the market purportedly to help adult cigarette smokers kick the habit. Instead, they’ve introduced nicotine to a new generation of non-smoking teens—thus creating our country’s current youth vaping epidemic. With vaping under fire, it’s no surprise that multinational corporations are finding new ways to profit from others’ addictions.

Have you heard of nicotine pouches? If you haven’t, now’s the time to learn about them and share the risks with your students, because these tiny pouches have all the makings to become the next big problem.

Help Teens KNOW! How To Set Dating Boundaries
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. This month, we highlight the fact that one in three teens will experience physical or sexual abuse, or both, and we emphasize efforts and conversations with our children on the importance of healthy relationships.

In the previous tip, Know! Love is Respect, we shared the relationship spectrum, a guide to help young people understand the differences between healthy, unhealthy, and abusive dating relationships.

Know! Love Is Respect
Dating relationships can be tricky at any age, but especially for young people who are navigating uncharted waters. Have you talked to your tweens/teens about what positive, healthy dating relationships look like? There’s no time like the present, as February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

We like to think of young love as innocent and sweet. But unfortunately, teen dating violence is much more common than most people realize. According to loveisrespect.org, one in three teens will experience physical or sexual abuse, or both. Therefore, it is critical for us to have ongoing conversations with our children on the subject.

“Dating violence is preventable, especially if education about healthy relationships starts early,” said William Wubbenhorst, Associate Commissioner for the Family and Youth Services Bureau within the Administration for Children and Families.

Greenville City School's Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
The Story of Dolly’s Imagination Library

In 1996, Dolly Parton launched an exciting effort to benefit the children of her home county, Sevier County, in eastern Tennessee. Dolly wanted to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families. She wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create.

Know! How to Keep Kids in Focus If Divorce Occurs
As the holiday season came to a close, a new, far less joyful season began—the divorce season. January is known as a time of new beginnings; wiping the slate clean and starting fresh. For many married couples, that unfortunately means separation and divorce. In fact, January sees such a spike in marriages being ended that it is recognized as National Child-Centered Divorce Awareness Month.

Why the child-centered focus? Because as painful as separation and divorce are for the couple going through it, they can be devastating and disastrous for the children involved. National Child-Centered Divorce Awareness Month was created to alert parents about the potential effects of divorce on children, and to help protect young people’s emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.

Know! How to Fight Teen Depression
Teachers: We encourage you to share the following Know! Parent Tip with parents you know via email, a parent newsletter, during parent-teacher conferences, or however you communicate with them. The holidays can often be a stressful and difficult time for some teens. The more parents and teachers know what to look for and how to help, the more likely those teens will have the skills and strategies they need to thrive.

The holiday season is filled with peace and joy for many, yet sadness and despair for others, creating the perfect storm for the onset or worsening of depression.
