“The teenage brain is still developing clear up into the mid-twenties, so it’s an important time in their lives. I think we all know that teens tend to be a bit impulsive. Adults that are in their lives, it’s a good time for us to be consistent and what we’re communicating to them.”

When asked if a teen attending would ruin all that strategizing, Brenda Thomson, community relations coordinator for the library, said kids are welcome, too.

For adults and teenagers:

“It’s primarily for parents and other adults because it will be talking about how to set those boundaries and communicate clearly, but it’s great for teens as well because it can open up that conversation, so especially if they attend with their parents. I think this is a good idea.”

Ms. Thomson said the workshops are free, no registration necessary.

Two workshops:

“The Juvenile Crimes Workshop is on February 2nd at 6:30pm in our Crawford Room. There’s also a second workshop that’s specifically about drugs and alcohol and how they affect the teenage brain, and that’s going to be on February 16th.”

Both workshops are at 6:30pm in the Crawford Room. For more information, you can call the Natrona County Public Library at 577-READ, or 577-7323.
