Encouraging parents to talk to their children on the dangers of drug use, Glendora Police is hosting an information night on local drug use and prevention.
Parents of students in the Glendora Unified School District are invited to listen to the Glendora Police presentation 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 at Glendora High School’s Little Theater.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, teenagers whose parents talk to them regularly on the dangers of drug use are 42 percent less likely to use drugs. However, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.
Glendora Police will discuss:
· The newest trends in drug use,
· specifics on how drugs are used,
· signs and indicators of substance abuse,
· steps parents should take if they believe their teenager is using drugs
There will be a raffle for prizes for parents who attend the meeting. Free childcare for children in the fifth grade and under is also available. Call Melissa Germann at (626) 963-1611, ext. 370, for more information.
