“How to Help Your Kids Say ‘No’” takes place from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St.

Speakers and panelists include Jen McNeil, crisis counselor for the Davis Joint Unified School District; Trease Petersen, youth intervention specialist for the Davis Police Department; Jon Daily, a substance abuse counselor and author; and Dean Blumberg, manager of adolescent and family programs at Kaiser Permanente SF.

Pamela Wu will once again serve as moderator.

Parents will learn how to effectively communicate with their children about drugs and alcohol, how to prevent drug and alcohol use and abuse and what kind of impact these substances have on developing brains.
