Show and Tell - What Your Teens are Really Doing behind Closed Doors?

Sign Up for E-News

This special program will provide parents an opportunity to see and hear about the latest trends kids are using to sneak in alcohol, nicotine and weed into parties and even classrooms. 

The goal is to educate parents on what is trending in the life of kids.  Parents will get to see vaping pens and other paraphernalia that is popular.   They will learn about how easy it is for their kids to purchase these items.  Most importantly, strategies will be provided to keep their kids healthy.  

Recently, Nancy Kislin overheard two moms talking about how stressful it was to find a “wine bra” to fit under their daughter’s homecoming dress.  After  some research Nancy learned that a “wine bra” is plastic, inflatable bra with a large straw that is intended to be filled with wine or booze.  The most upsetting part of the story was that the parents felt the responsibility to locate and purchase this item for their underage daughters.  This was the inspiration for the Show and Tell Program. 

Nancy Kislin, Family Psychotherapist and Parent Educator will guide parents as to what to look for as well as how to talk to their kids.   

All are welcome on November 2, 2017 at 10:45am.  

The event is hosted at a private home.  Please rsvp mmacupdates@gmail.com to get the address. 

MMAC continues to educate parents about the ongoing epidemic of drugs and alcohol in our community.  We strive to empower parents to be educated of what is going on and how to set firm boundaries to keep their children safe.

For additional information please contact Nancy Kislin 973-534-7795
