Welcome to Oyster River Middle School Counseling Department

While parenting your middle schooler, please remember to:

  • Start with LOVE, ACCEPTANCE and HOPE
  • Be Authentic
  • Provide Space and Opportunity
  • Be Present. Put Down Your Devices
  • Prioritize Connection with your Child

"The single most common factor for children who develop resilience is at least one stable and committed relationships with a supportive parent, caregiver or other adult."
