(Update: you'll note, if you take the survey, that it asks a lot of questions about these issues as it pertains to the NE. But Inga said they would be happy to hear from all parents. If you don't feel you can answer those questions, skip them. I think they would like to hear from parents about what you do/don't do in terms of talking to your children about alcohol and drugs.)
From our friends at Prevention Works in Seattle, a survey on youth substance abuse.
Prevention Works in Seattle, a coalition to prevent youth substance abuse in northeast Seattle, is interested in your views about issues of youth alcohol and marijuana use in our community. Your opinion is important to us. It will help us plan effective substance abuse prevention programs in our community.
We would appreciate if you could complete this 10-15 minute survey. We know that individuals might have different opinions about the issues in this survey, so we would like each adult in your household to complete his or her own survey.
The survey is anonymous and confidential. We will not ask for your name or other information that would be personally identifiable.
If you need a paper copy of the survey, please contact Inga Manskopf at 206.396.0919 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like additional information about the coalition, please visit www.preventionworksinseattle.org.
And FYI, it's coming up to being prom/graduation season. Talk to your teen if he/she will be involved in any of these activities. Also, many, many students in middle/high school have some kind of get-together at a park area on the last day of school. Many times there is a keg of beer involved. Make sure you know where your pre-teen/teen is on the last day of school.
