Tiger parents encouraged to attend the March 11 event
Loveland, Ohio – Loveland Educating Against Alcohol and Drugs (LEAAD) presents Right Under Your Nose Sunday, March 11, at Prince of Peace Church. Designed as an educational opportunity for adults only, Right Under Your Nose uncovers the hidden dangers that students face on a daily basis, including: substance abuse, violence, juvenile crime, technology, and risky behaviors. Doors will open at 4:30 PM for adults to tour a mock teenager’s bedroom, visit an artifact table, and meet with community resources including drug addiction professionals, mental health counselors and preventative programs. The Right Under Your Nose presentation will start at 5:30 PM.
“If you were unable to attend the presentation in 2016, now is your chance!” said Loveland Middle School Assistant Principal Jayson Bruce, who serves on the executive committee of LEAAD. “However, if you did see it the first time, a lot has changed, and this experience would be worth your time.”
To date, LEAAD has presented the Right Under Your Nose program to more than 1,000 adults – including sessions at several local school districts, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Changing the Future of Children of Addicted Parents Conference.
“I am beyond ecstatic with what we have been able to accomplish with Right Under Your Nose,” said Bruce. “The conversations that parents are having with their children because of this program is so important. If we can help one parent or one young adult, then all of this is well worth it.”
Included in the Right Under Your Nose presentation is a mother’s heartbreaking story of how drug addiction ultimately took her son. Beth Renner hopes that by sharing her story, she can help one parent or one child that is struggling themselves. The night will conclude with a Q & A session.
