All In Mountain Brook, an anti-drug coalition for the city of Mountain Brook, will be hosting a parenting conference on Jan. 10 at Mountain Brook High School geared specifically towards parents of children in grades 6-12.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. and will include speakers discussing a variety of topics that the organization considers to be some of the most pressing issues related to today’s youth. As opposed to previous conferences, this event will not involve breakout sessions, but instead will feature a program for everyone in attendance.
The event will begin with an opening discussion “Never Stop Fighting for Your Family” by Mountain Brook Schools Superintendent Dr. Dicky Barlowe.
The event will also include “Mental Health and Our Youth,” by clinical psychologist Dr. Dale Wisely; “Vaping: What Parents Need to Know,” by Dr. Susan Walley of UAB’s Department of Pediatrics; “Update on Underage Drinking and Marijuana Use,” by Bradford Health Service’s Abbey McManus; and “Raising Teenagers: Legal Complications,” featuring a panel including Judge K. C. Hairston, Attorney Greg Foster, School Resource Office Richard Knecht and Judge Turner D. Williams.
The event is free to attend but registration is required. To register, visit allinmountainbrook.org/aip2019a/.
