Talk. They Hear You. Talking with your teen about alcohol, drugs and choices W/ Colleen Judge and Diane Ferrara – December 1, 6:30 pm

Parents are the leading influence on teenagers’ decisions about drinking and other substance use. Many caregivers wonder how to approach this topic in a way that young people will listen. It’s not a one-time
conversation but an ongoing process that can be simple and honest. What you say, how, and when you say it matters. Young people are more likely to listen if they know you are on their side. This webinar will offer strategies for connecting with youth in ways that will optimize your role as a parent to prevent substance use and support wellbeing.
