Fort Bend ISD parents and guardians are invited to attend “Family Matters,” an adult-only event designed to help parents recognize warning signs and how they may relate to substance abuse.
The event will be at Travis High School on Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 6-8 p.m. and is open to the community. Tony Hoffman will serve as the event’s special guest speaker. Hoffman is a nationally renowned inspirational speaker and 2016 Rio Olympics BMX coach. His presentation outlines ways for parents to take proactive steps in their children’s lives, signs to watch out for and how to talk to your children about substance abuse. A panel of local experts will also be on-hand to offer their advice and tips.
There will also be a walk-around exhibit set up for parents to discover how alcohol and drugs can be easily hidden in a teenager’s bedroom or car, and to learn about local resources of support in the community.
