The Other Talk
Wednesday, , 2017
Brookline High School MLK room
Parents of juniors and seniors -- We prepare our kids for college by talking about responsible behavior – studying hard, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, spending wisely. But have we prepared them well for the complete change in social culture they are likely to encounter? In many circles, weekend parties and binge drinking are the norm at college, and impressionable freshman are especially vulnerable to risky behavior.
On April 5, Caron Student Assistance Program and the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office present “The Other Talk,” a program that helps parents of soon-to-be college students communicate accurate, healthy and practical messages to their children regarding college alcohol/drug use and other risky behavior. Sponsored by B-PEN, the program will include information on current trends, safety tips, and useful strategies for opening the lines of communication with your teens.
While it can be difficult to talk to our teens about drug and alcohol use, it’s especially important to have the conversation now. Remember – we are still our children’s most important influence!
This presentation is made possible by a generous grant from by Michael Morrissey, Norfolk County District Attorney and the Brookline Community Fund.
