        DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP — The Coalition for a Drug-Free Greater Cincinnati is offering moms and dads a little extra parenting help.

        Fathers are invited to a Dinner for Dads on Tuesday, a free dinner and workshop entitled “Your Very Important Role as Father in Your Child's Life.” Dinner will begin at 5:45 p.m. at Columbia Elementary School.

        John Lazares, Warren County Schools superintendent and former Kings Schools superintendent, will lead the discussion. This is a follow-up program to last year's Dinner for Dads that attracted 40 people.

        Mothers can attend the Especially for Moms event on Friday. It's a breakfast and workshop at Kings Mills Elementary that focuses on how parents can combat negative media influences and peer pressure on children.

        Videos, workbooks and a facilitated discussion follow an 8:30 a.m. breakfast. There is a $5 fee for the workbook.

        The coalition maintains that parents want guidance and need to educate themselves about today's teen culture.

        Dads need to register by Sunday and moms by Tuesday. Call 683-6551 to make reservations
