It's nothing new for teens to be busy. A 2002 New York Times article stated: "Americans are said to be a sleep-deprived people, and teenagers are the worst of the lot."
The Elk Grove Youth Commission is looking to help local teens balance their lives better, and will host a workshop Saturday to help.
More details follow, courtesy of the city:
Registration Now Open for March 23 Teen Workshop
Promoting a healthier balance to a teen’s daily life responsibilities is the goal of “The Game of Life: Time is of the Essence” workshop being hosted by the Elk Grove Youth Commission.
Overcommitted teens too often turn to a form of substance abuse to deal with stress, or just drop the ball when it comes to important things like homework and school attendance. This workshop will help teach time management, prioritizing the important things in life, understanding there’s a place and time for everything, and learning how to balance it all.
The takeaway for teens? Balance is possible. Teens are encouraged to attend this helpful workshop on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 8400 Laguna Palms Way. For more information and to preregister, visit www.elkgrovecity.org.
