What Every Parent And Teen Should Know
The school district and California Youth Services will present “The Reality of Orange County Teens: What Every Parent and Teen Should Know” Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Thurston Middle School gym.
Exhibits will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the talk begin at 6 p.m.
Teens and parents alike believe that all teens experiment with drugs and alcohol at various levels, said Irene White, the district’s director of special education and student services. “This is clearly a myth and teen and parents need to understand the risks involved in a single use. We need to change the mind set in our community and embrace the belief that the adults need to do whatever it takes to assure that all teens stay alcohol and drug free.”
Presenters will include a drug overdose survivor and sober young adult speakers.
“The information provided in this parent information night is invaluable and will provide an avenue for parents to have meaningful conversations with their kids about the impact of drug and alcohol, said LBHS Principal Joanne Culverhouse.
