Social Norms Workgroup meets next week

Parenting Social Norms Workgroup Meeting
Tuesday, April 26, 7-8:30 p.m.
Seattle Children's Hospital

During our March meeting, the workgroup identified campaign goals:

-- To reduce youth substance abuse.
-- To decrease favorable attitudes about drugs.
-- To increase parenting behaviors that have been proven to prevent youth substance abuse:
  1. Talk to your children about drugs.
  2. Set specific consequences.
  3. Monitor your children.
All community members who are interested in developing and implementing a social norms campaign for parents in NE Seattle are welcome! For more information, contact the Prevention WINS coordinator.

What is a social norms campaign for parents?  Here is a social norms poster that the Mercer Island Communities That Care coalition developed.
