Drugs and Young Teens - Wednesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. at Bala Cynwyd Middle School

Drug use has become rampant in our society, with usage beginning very young age. We encourage parents of 4th through 8th graders to join us as we welcome a team from The Caron Foundation who will provide information on current youth drug trends we are seeing in our community and the dangers to the developing brain and body. In addition, this action-oriented workshop will help:

  • Empower parents and caregivers with effective communication skills when talking with their children about alcohol, tobacco and other drug use
  • Educate us about the importance of establishing clear rules and consequences at home regarding substance use
  • Evaluate resiliency factors that help protect kids from substance use
  • Teach parents about how to identify local resources if addiction support is needed
