Jan. 15 workshop will help parents spot risky behavior

The program uses a mockup of a teenager’s bedroom to help parents spot clues.
The Fauquier sheriff’s office on Wednesday, Jan. 15, will offer an interactive workshop to help parents detect children’s drug use and other risky behavior.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in The Depot at the Bealeton library branch.

“Hidden in Plain Sight” features a three-dimensional mockup of a teenager’s bedroom.

“The experience is to learn the illusions and educate yourself about what you are seeing and what you should look for,” the sheriff’s office said in press release.

Fifteen community organizations worked with the sheriff’s office to create the program.

Hidden in Plain Sight deals with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, prescription drugs, eating disorders, violence, mental disorders and other potentially risky behavior.

The program runs about two hours. Attendance will be restricted to adults, with 30 spots available for the Jan. 15 presentation.

The program started in mid-2019. About 150 people have attended one of the six presentations so far.
