On Tuesday, January 5th, LCA faculty and families welcomed youth culture expert Dr. Walt Mueller to the Cross Center for an engrossing dialogue concerning teenage substance abuse and the difficult, yet crucial decisions that children and young adults face in the world today.
From 7:00pm to 8:30pm, Dr. Mueller explained some of the strongest pressures facing 21st Century children, and provided sage advice to LCA parents and educators alike on how to best support and encourage the youth in their lives. Dr. Mueller also informed his audience of the warning signs of alcohol and drug abuse, and offered recommendations on how to respond should a child fall prey to dangerous influences.
“I admire the incisive manner in which Walt continually takes the pulse of youth culture,” said Tim Russell, LCA’s Head of School. “His discernment of the pressures and passions of our youth gives us all wisdom in knowing how we can support young people in a culture often hostile to wholesome upbringings.”
Beth Mollenhauer, parent of Benjamin (9), Joy (8) and Luke (6), also enjoyed and appreciated the chance to hear Dr. Mueller speak, noting, “He offered a wealth of information that will help us guide our kids through a culture that is so fast-paced and difficult to navigate. He did a great job of equipping us adults with a view of what our kids are going through, and in such an accessible and positive way.”
Dr. Mueller has spent the last 35 years serving schools, churches and communities on behalf of his organization, The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding. He has toured throughout the country and across the world, promoting healthy life choices and working to narrow the cultural and generational gap between children and their parents.
