How To Talk To Your Child or Teen About Alcohol & Drugs

Parenting is not easy, especially when it comes to talking about alcohol and other drugs. Many parents hope to avoid the subject entirely.  But as parents we have far more influence than we think.  Talking honestly with our kids about alcohol and drugs can have a real impact.  

Does Prevention Education Work?   

Program evaluations indicate that the programs we support make a difference in increasing the knowledge, attitudes and decision-making skills of students in the WW-P Regional School District.  Our programs reach all 2nd graders (Count on Me Kids), 5th graders (D.A.R.E.),  6-8th graders (8th Grade Connection), Post Prom (HS), as well as Community Education for residents of all ages in West Windsor and Plainsboro.   

 WW-P Alliance Meetings – You are welcome to attend.

Our next meeting will be held  Thursday, February 22, 2018, 8:30 a.m, WW-P High School North, Main Office Conference Room.  We are an active group of volunteers and professionals. Meetings are open but we do ask that you let us know that you are coming – email Marcia at  info@wwpAlliance.org

The NJ Social Marketing Collaborative was developed by the New Jersey Prevention Network (NJPN), the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) and the New Jersey AD Club in order to positively impact 18 to 25 young adults and their parents. Bringing together the expertise of these three organizations and adding the full Collaborative membership establishes a strong base to develop and implement a statewide effective prevention program. http://www.parentchecknj.com
