High Point Academy’s Parent Education Program’s first event will introduce a new format to the program: a panel discussion with the highly-qualified staff of The Center for Connection in Pasadena. The speakers promise to address many of the questions that arise as children and their parents move through life.

Wondering if stress is all bad? Childhood has its ups and downs, but how much stress is too much?
