Parent Communication Network launches membership drive

The Parent Communication Network (PCN) is leading a major membership recruitment campaign.  Joining is easy – there are no meetings and no dues!

.

More than 350 local parents have already signed on, saying they agree to:

  • Set good limits for their children regarding curfew, dating patterns, overnights, etc.
  • Work to create an atmosphere where the use of alcohol and drugs is NOT considered an "acceptable" or "normal" part of growing up.
  • Assure that youth events they host will be chaperoned and free of alcohol and drugs.
  • Talk directly with other parents to ensure that events they are hosting will be chaperoned and free of alcohol and drugs.
  • Communicate a clear "no use" message about underage use of alcohol or any use of illegal substances.
  • Be a good role model for our children to help them learn about healthy, responsible behavior. 

The PCN campaign has been endorsed by the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Alcohol & Drug Use and the Northfield Healthy Community Initiative, which are both assisting with publicity for the campaign.

Zach Pruitt is the coordinator of the Northfield Healthy Community Initiative.
