Do you have any idea of the pressures that your teen is feeling? Some assorted comments we’ve received:
Everyone gets picked on, you just need to deal with it – NHS Student
Why is everyone else popular, but not me? – NHS Student
I wish everyone would just leave me alone – NHS Student
I don’t feel like myself anymore – NHS Student
I wake up every day feeling like it’s doomsday – NHS Student
I always feel sad, I don’t know why – NPS Student
Did you talk to your parents about how you feel? ... I don’t want them to worry – NHS Student

It comes at them from every direction. So tonight at 7 p.m. in the Narragansett High School Media Center, Michael C. Cerullo Jr., MS, LMHC, will be giving a presentation on peer relationships, bullying and the emotional well-being of developing adolescents.
If you don’t think this relates to you or your teenager, well, is it worth an hour of your time to make sure?
