The Middle School Years

Heights Middle School Head, Mr. Andy Reed, discusses the middle school years.  Drawing on his years of experience working with middle school boys and their families, Mr. Reed offers practical advice on how parents can best help their sons grow during these crucial years of formation.  While we have often heard it said that parents should “cut the cord” and “let him leave the nest,” in this talk Mr. Reed emphasises the importance of parents combining freedom with formation.  He recommends parents keep their sons especially close during these critical years, even as they give them the genuine freedom to grow in virtue.
