Parents: Get Your Teen A REALITY CHECK

Here’s a question for parents of teenagers: Does your teen know how to change a flat tire, balance a checkbook, or defend themselves?  What if they were stopped by police, were in an active shooter situation, or had a late-night vehicle accident?  These are real situations that can occur at any time.

The Kiwanis Club of Leesville is holding a REALITY CHECK for your teens on Monday, November 20, from 8 a.m. -1 p.m. at the Northwestern State University/Leesville-Ft. Johnson campus on University Parkway.

This event is free to attend and falls during the Thanksgiving break from school.  REALITY CHECK will give your teens the knowledge and resources they need to help handle the transition from teen to adulthood.  Each course will be taught by experts in their fields.  Topics covered will include roadside safety, understanding how a good credit score is important, dealing with peer pressure, and protecting on-line identity.  There will be a simulation of driving under the influence to help understand the effects of alcohol on their abilities.

The Kiwanis Club of Leesville is preparing our youth for life tomorrow.  Register your teens today and tell them to bring a friend.  Call 337-424-9613 for details and to register your child for a REALITY CHECK.
