PARENT/ADULT ONLY EVENT

Would you see the signs of youth alcohol or drug use in your home? Looks can be very deceiving - especially if you don't know what to look for. Come to a Hidden in Plain Sight exhibit and learn what to look for and what to do if you find something.

The Hidden in Plain Sight initiative helps parents spot signs of at-risk behaviors using an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom. After walking through the display, participants will learn more about adolescent development and common signs of substance use provided by professionals of treatment, law enforcement, substance abuse prevention, and other parents.

This exhibit encourages parents to communicate with their children about at-risk behavior that could lead to alcohol or drug disorders. Because a strong parent-teen relationship is the most effective tool to prevent youth substance use.

This event is also offered on Monday, March 4th at Maywood Middle School in Renton. Register for the date/location that works best for you!

Sponsored in partnership by the Issaquah Schools Foundation, Influence the Choice drug prevention alliance for youth, City of Sammamish Police Department, Eastside Fire & Rescue, City of Sammamish Parks & Recreation, Issaquah PTSA Council 2.6, ParentWiser, City of Issaquah Police Department, Friends of Youth.

Based on the Well-Balanced Student by CHALLENGE SUCCESS, a Stanford University think-tank of educators, psychologists and parenting professionals, speaker Mary Hofstedt, School Program Director for Challenge Success, shares research based insights on how to reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement.

When we are too focused on grades and performance, we deny our children the time and energy they need to tackle the demanding work of growing up. In this presentation, you’ll learn how you can establish a healthier home environment for your school-aged child, reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement, and increase your child’s resilience, creativity, and well-being.

This presentation is an interactive workshop coupled with opportunities for personal reflection, audience participation, and brief discussion. Parents leave with practical strategies for home and school.
