Many TJ students rely on their friends or parents to get through the highly-stressful environment at TJ. Parents are among the best resources to help TJ students through challenging circumstances from offering comfort during times of mental anguish to providing a lending hand in a class project. In addition, they are an integral part of the TJ community and support the TJ faculty and staff via the PTSA. We spoke to Karthik Thyagarajan and Simrith Ranjan, as well as their parents, to learn more about the role that parents play.
