During the middle- and high-school years, homework gets more intense and grades start to matter more. At the same time, teens face a lot of other big changes. They're adjusting to the physical and emotional effects of puberty, while busy social lives and sports commitments gain importance, and many also take part-time jobs. Parents can play a crucial role in helping teens handle these challenges and succeed in school by lending a little help, support, and guidance, and by knowing what problems demand their involvement and which ones require them to hang back. Make sure your teen has a quiet, well-lit, distraction-free place to study.

Teen Services: A Fresh Perspective
At the Center for Healthy Eating and Activity Research, each of our programs teaches children, adolescents and their families healthy eating habits, ways to increase physical activity, and how to organize the home to promote sustainable weight loss. The FRESH-DOSE program lasts six months and provides guided self-help and family-based behavioral therapy to help families develop healthy eating and exercise behaviors that can become healthy habits for life. In the FRESH-DOSE study families receive information from experienced interventionists who provide children and their families with healthy eating habits, ways to increase physical activity, and how to organize the home to promote sustainable weight loss. Families also attend assessment appointments and will be compensated for their time and effort. The FRESH-Teen program is a six month, no-cost behavioral weight loss treatment program for adolescents ages with overweight and obesity and their participating parent.
Issue 2 ». Every weekday when the bell rings, approximately middle and high school students arrive at the Champaign Public Library. A large influx of middle and high school teens can bring a certain level of chaos that is not always appreciated by other library users. We are all from the Adult Services department although staff from other departments help when they can and they are welcome. Our library acknowledges that providing service to teens may not be for everyone.
