Teens & Risks: Drugs, Alcohol, & Sex

Friday, Feb. 10; 12 -1:30 pm

Austin, Texas

Teens are wired for novelty and risk. This is usually one part of parenting that causes the most fear. How can we allow them the necessary freedom to explore their independence while educating them on their choices and increasing their safety? That is what this workshop is all about.

What we will cover: 

  • How the adolescent brain is wired for risk
  • Creating healthy risks for teens
  • How to know if your daughter is at risk for dangerous choices
  • What protects our kids from risky choices
  • Facts about alcohol and drugs that all parents should know
  • Resources for your girls regarding sex
  • How to have these touchy conversations before your teen experiments
  • How to respond after they have made a “risky” choice 

Who is this for?

This workshop is for any parent who wants to arm themselves with important information on these topics and wants to learn effective communication tools to have constructive conversations that make a positive impact on their teens. This is for any parent feeling worried or scared about their teen daughter's choices or her future choices.

 Workshop Details:

We’ll meet in a location in south central Austin (near Zilker Park) from 12 pm – 1:30 pm on Friday, February 10th.

Bring a water bottle, a journal, and a pen. Please feel free to bring your lunch.


Barb will share information based on research and from her over 30 years of experience working with teens. There will be plenty of time for both learning and sharing. Bring your questions!
