THE SOCIAL SCENE: Coaching Your Teen/Tween to Make Positive Decisions!

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Thriving Youth Darien 2023 Youth Survey of 6th-12th graders showed that the most significant increases in alcohol use happen between 8th and 9th grade, and then again between 11th and 12th grade – most often at a party or with friends at a home. How can you help your kids stay safe & manage tricky social situations?

Please join Joyce Sixsmith, Darien High School’s Connections Counselor, and John Hamilton, President and CEO of Liberation Programs, on February 8th at 7pm for an interactive Zoom webinar about how to help your teen/tween make healthy decisions about the social/party scene and tips for talking about the potential risks and consequences of substance use – its impact on physical health, mental well-being, academic performance, and future opportunities. The program is targeted to parents of middle and high schoolers, but anyone interested in helping youth navigate the social scene is welcome to join us! Registration is free and required.

Program brought to you by Thriving Youth Darien, Liberation Programs and YWCA Parent Awareness.
