Loreto Parents Association would like to invite all parents to a talk which will be given by John Sharry on April 6th 2016 at 7.30pm. John Sharry is a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, Social Worker, Author and Co-Founder of Parents Plus Charity Ireland Mental Health Care.
The talk is titled: 'Helping Teenagers make Good Choices about Alcohol, Drugs and Sex'. Teenagers and young people are under increased pressure to become involved in harmful and risky activities whether it is smoking, drinking, early sexual activity or drug taking. Parents are right to be concerned and they have a key role to play in keeping their children safe. Drawing on up-to-date research, John Sharry will present principles for parents interested in knowing how to help their children remain safe as they grow up and to divert them from problematic drinking and drug taking etc. The focus is on prevention, showing parents the best steps they can take to protect their children and avoid problems in the first place.
We are sure that this will prove to be very informative and are looking forward to seeing you there.
