COMMUNITY PARENT NETWORK EVENT
DR. DAVID WALSH: "Why Do They Act That Way?
A Practical Guidefor Parenting Pre-teens and Teenagers"
On Wednesday, February 9th at 7:00 p.m. at Adlai E Stevenson High School - WEST Auditorium, award-winning psychologist and best-selling author Dr. David Walsh, will address the community on the topic of adolescence.
Adolescence has been described as a “normally abnormal stage of life.” This workshop, based on Dr. Walsh's best selling book, explains what happens to the adolescent brain on the path from childhood into adulthood, going beyond the well-known issues of hormones and peer pressure. Revealing the latest scientific findings in easy-to-understand terms, Dr. Walsh shows why moodiness, quickness to anger, willingness to take risks, miscommunication and other familiar teenage behaviors are so common. Event will be at Adlai E. Stevenson High School - West Auditorium.
Among other issues facing parents of teenagers, Dr. Walsh will talk about the effect of alcohol and drugs on the teenage brain. This is a must attend event for parents and community members. Admission is free, but registration is requested via Eventbrite.

Adlai E. Stevenson High School Prevention Team rolled out its “Your Brain--Gray Matters” information campaign for students the week of January 22nd and it was a great success with over 1,600 downloads !
The campaign's intention was/is to help improve students’ knowledge about the brain, its development during the teen years, and how drugs and alcohol can impair development.
As part of the campaign, the team has created a “Your Brain--Gray Matters” app for students available for iPhone and iPad through the App Store. The app features a game called Brain Blitz, in which students can test their knowledge about the effects of making healthy choices.
