"Now I gotta cut loose, footloose . . ." The Low-Down on the Local Tween and Teen Highs.
An informative panel presentation concerning pre-teen and teenage substance usage in Scarsdale, the results of the PRIDE survey that was administered to all high school students last spring, the underlying social and psychological factors driving risky teen behavior, and what educators, parents, and community members can do to alleviate the problem. The conversation will include discussion of binge drinking, vaping, and juuling among Scarsdale's youth, the impact of social media on teen behaviors and habits, and social host laws and liability.
