Feb. 17, 2012 - PRLog -- NEWBURY PARK, CALIF.--A free lecture series especially for moms with teenagers will begin March 6 at the Miller Family YMCA of Newbury Park (320 Via Las Brisas, Newbury Park). Conducting the talks is a mother of three, Corine Riedell, a licensed Physicians Assistant with Wilkes Family Medicine.

   "What Your Teen Daughter Needs" is the subject of the first talk scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 at 4:30 p.m. and Friday, March 9 at 11:30 a.m. It will focus on how parents can meet the specific needs of their teen or pre-teen girl, addressing topics such as body image, dietary needs, the first PAP, vaccines, the teen emotional roll-coaster and how to keep communication open.

   "Do I Really Have to Think About Drugs in the Conejo Valley?" is the topic of the second talk set for Tuesday, March 13 at 4:30 p.m. and Friday, March 16 at 11:30 a.m. Riedell, who worked 11 years around emergency rooms and was personally affected by a family member's drug use while growing up in the Conejo Valley, will discuss the science of addiction, warning signs, where to get help and offer tips on prevention.

   "Taking Care of the Caretaker" is the topic of the final talk, which will take place Tuesday March 27 at 4:30 p.m. and Friday, March 30 at 11:30 a.m. "Between running a household, juggling kids' schedules and making sure older parents are okay, it's easy to burn out," says Riedell. "Moms have to protect their health." She will discuss how to get motivated to eat right and to stay balanced and energized.

   "The Y offers lots of youth programs and exercise programs for every age group," says Katie Beck, Miller Y executive director. "We're excited to present this program especially for moms who are doing much of the heavy lifting when it comes to the family."

   To make reservations to attend one or all of the lectures, call the Miller YMCA at 805-480-0309.
