Practical Safety Tips To Teen-Proof Your Home

Part of teen proofing your home is an accounting of prescription drugs in the home.

When they were little, you baby-proofed your home. They need your guidance now more than ever.

That’s the message of Wednesday’s Teen Proof Your Home, an event at Willamette High School.

The free one hour information and education meeting by the Lane County Prevention Program is designed to teach parents how to approach practical safety in the home as it relates to teenagers and pre-teens.

Topics will include parties, alcohol, prescriptions, poisons, gambling, suicide prevention, the internet and more.

The event will be held Wednesday April 18th at 7:00 p.m., in room 131 at Willamette.
