In response, the Partnership for Drug-free Kids is hosting four 60 minute interactive online sessions for parents and caregivers designed to address issues faced during the summer months – like increased free time and substance use.

The Summer Success Online Series will be held June24-27, 2019 at 8:00pm EST.

Tuesday, June 25 “How do I set limits with my teen/young adult over the summer?” provides clarity on not only substance use, but also curfews, driving privileges, sleep patterns and more.

Wednesday, June 26 “How can I impose my own consequences that are fair and effective?” examines how to create meaningful ways to reduce unwanted behaviors. Thursday, June 27 “How do I offer advice or information to my son or daughter?” introduces a tool to communicate limits and consequences so everyone understands what the expectations are and what will happen if they aren’t met.
