Williamson County Juvenile Court Judge Sharon Guffee knows all too well how drug and alcohol use can impact young people; she sees it in her court every day. To equip parents to address abuse issues with their teens, Guffee is hosting a seminar on Sunday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Summit High School in Spring Hill, The Tennessean reports. The program is a partnership between the Juvenile Court, 21st Judicial Drug Task Force, Dr. James Wellborn and a local church. Parents can expect to hear about current trends in drug use, an overview of court related services and responses, and expert advice about parenting teens. Students who attend will gain information about the physical and legal dangers of drug and alcohol abuse as well as tips for talking to their parents.
