Parents are still the most powerful influence in their children’s lives.  According to the Department of Justice, youth who learn about drugs and alcohol from their parents are 50% less likely to use than those who don’t.  The average age teen boys first try alcohol is age 11, for girls it’s 13. The average first use of marijuana is 14 years old.

Talking to your children is more important now than it ever has been before.  Join us for an informative presentation to assist you in keeping your teens safe and knowing what to look for that may signify that your child needs your help.

Please join us for this workshop where we will talk about the following topics:

  • Substance use and current trends related to drugs and alcohol

  • What does it look like to keep our teens safe

  • Red Flags of Substance Use as it relates to intermediate school students

  • Talking to our youth about substance use, refusal techniques, healthy coping skills and mental health

This Parent Workshop Series is provided by the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District in collaboration with the WAWM Heroin/Opiate Task Force. For more information, contact Joanie Luedke 414-430-2207.
