Dear Readers: Last week, “Worried Mom” asked how to speak to her pre-college teen about the realities of college drinking and the college hookup scene. The panel reported from the front lines, and I’m hoping their stories will motivate all parents to speak up. Parents: Please share this two-part column with your teen. Expressing informed negative consequences of drinking along with your position regarding alcohol makes a positive difference. Tufts’ parent handbook “Talking with College Students about Alcohol” is a must-read. Find it online at http://ase.tufts.edu/healthed/documents/parentHandbook.pdf. — Lauren

Recently, news reports about the lack of personal ethics exhibited by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and the absence of empathy displayed by Cleveland child rapist Ariel Castro made me think about how attitudes toward personal responsibility may have changed since the 1970s.

If you are a parent of a teenager enrolled in a LUSD high school, you just received the infamous back-to-school packet to read and sign off on. It contains a lot of information and many items that you receive each year, but this year there is an addition you should note. The new social networking rules for athletes and co-curricular participants were distributed this year. Trust me, you want to read these thoroughly and discuss them with your children.

Last week, a triple murder took place in Stockton. Not an unusual story by itself, considering the city's recent history. But what made this tale unique was the alleged suicidal perpetrator. He was a licensed marriage and family therapist.

It’s September, so as far as I’m concerned we are now in the midst of the holiday season. (Yes, I start celebrating a tad earlier than most, and I’m having to resist the urge to bust out the Christmas music before November.) For me, the first leg of this four-month celebration involves the viewing of as many horror movies as humanly possible — a valid goal year-round, to be sure, but particularly pertinent as we approach Halloween.
