Parental Guidance program tonight at GW

Wondering what teens in Ridgewood are up to these days? Looking for advice on how to talk to your teens about living a healthy, drug-free life? The Ridgewood Municipal Alliance Committee is offering Ridgewood parents and community members a 1-hour presentation called "PG: Parental Guidance for Teens" tonight at 7:00 p.m. at George Washington Middle School.

Information to be covered includes current drug trends being seen here in Ridgewood & Bergen County, symptoms and availability, and suggestions for how parents can answer tough questions teens might ask. This is an interactive presentation, facilitated by Dee Debernardis of The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources. The program is being offered by the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance Committee with funding from the New Jersey Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance grant.

Questions or for more information call Ridgewood Parks and Recreation 201-670-5560.

What a dilemma: Board of Education meeting, Parental Guidance program or Monday Night Football...
