“Parent Talk Tuesday 4th April: Preventing alcohol and drug problems in teenagers, what parents can do.

Mount Temple PA Talk for Parents  (Healthy Living Week)
Tuesday 4th of April 2017 in the school library, 
Refreshments at 7.30 pm
8.00 pm start
 
Preventing Alcohol and Drug Problems in Teenagers  
what parents can do
 
Speaker: Dr. Bobby Smyth, child and adolescent psychiatrist and clinical senior lecturer in Trinity College and widely published researcher in the area of adolescent substance use.
 
The talk will address normal adolescent development and the role that alcohol and drug use can sometimes play in that process. The potential risks associated with adolescent drinking and drug use will be described. While teenagers are influenced by school, peers, community and wider culture, it appears clear that parents are the most important individual influence upon them. The positive steps which parents can take to support healthy adolescent development will be addressed. Clear advice will be provided on the parenting strategies which reduce the risk of teenagers developing alcohol and other substance abuse problems.
