The Counseling Department at Edison and Roosevelt Intermediate Schools will be hosting the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey’s (PDFNJ) 15 Minute Child Break program on Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. at Edison School.
The 15 Minute Child Break is a ONE-HOUR multi-media presentation offered by the PDFNJ. The presentation will include the importance of the parent or caregiver’s role on substance abuse prevention; as well as how to talk to children about drugs, signs of use and abuse to look for, current terminology, and trends of use. The presentation is based on New Jersey specific research conducted by the PDFNJ’s Center for Prevention Research.
This presentation is an opportunity for all parents and caregivers in all schools to come out and find out the role they play and the power they have in preventing their children from abusing drugs and alcohol.
