----NEWS RELEASE---

IONIA COUNTY, Mich.- Guiding today's young people through adolescence is no easy task.

Is your teen pushing your buttons? Not sure how to handle it? The good news is you are not alone! The Ionia County Substance Abuse Initiative (ICSAI) is here to help you make the most of staying ahead of the game and find common ground with your teen. Shoulder to Shoulder is dedicated to helping make your job easier by connecting fellow parents and caregivers, and sharing the insight of those who have been there before. Whether you're looking to help fellow parents or get help from fellow parents and other organizations, the Shoulder to Shoulder Training is a good fit for you.

Certified Prevention Specialist Stacy Moore will be instructing the classes. Moore stated, “Focus is given to positive parenting and great deal of time is spent, looking for a ways to initiate a conversation with teens on topics such as, drug or alcohol use.” The training topics discussed include: How to engage in conversations with your teen, problem solving, setting rules and boundaries, risk reduction and balancing respect.
