Tonight, the Central Carolina Jaycees hosted FAMILY TALK at the Boys & Girls Club of Sanford/Lee County. FAMILY TALK is designed to help parents open up the lines of communication with their children to help prevent teen and pre-teen drinking.
Darla Cole, head resource officer for Lee County Schools, did a fantastic job of addressing a crowded room of elementary and middle school students, as well as some parents. She gave a dynamic and interactive talk about the dangers of drinking and how children can battle peer pressure. The kids had a great time trying out beer goggles and practicing different ways to say “No” when their friends or acquaintances pressure them to try alcohol.
