Sophomore Parents Choices Commission Program

On Tuesday, February 12, 2013/ 3 Adar 5773, the High School Guidance Department and Parents’ Choices Commission held an event for Parents of Sophomores at the JBHS. The program, entitled “It’s Not My Kid: The Dangers All Teens Face with Drugs and Alcohol” opened the parents eyes to the challenges and choices that teens face in today’s world. The Parent program included an insightful video by students on the Choices Commission, as well as a thought provoking presentation by parents who shared their personal story of their son’s battle with drug addiction. Their willingness to speak about this difficult and painful time in their lives made a deep impression on everyone who attended. Tips were shared for ways that parents can effectively help their teens stay safe and make responsible decisions. This program was held a week after Sophomore Seminar where the students had a special program with the JACS organization. Adults in recovery from substance use shared their stories with them and empowered the students to make good and safe choices in complicated social situations.
