Parent drug education program returns to Bay Middle School
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think my child would engage in alcohol or other drugs, let alone develop a drug problem.” We hear this time and time again from parents whose children become chemically dependent.
Whether it’s drug abuse or experimentation, parents need to know that their children are putting themselves at risk every time they decide to engage in alcohol and other drugs. This is why parents need to educate themselves by learning what the drug trends are, that experimentation can lead to addiction, that some kids are at a higher risk than others, what the signs are and how to respond if they discover their child has a problem.
On Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. at Bay Middle School, please join other parents and an expert panel at the “NOT MY CHILD” Parent Drug Education Program to learn all you can about adolescent alcohol and other drug use. Think of this program as an “Adolescent Safety Town” because, like Safety Town, parents will also be preparing and helping to protect their children from “street” danger.
