HOW TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT DRUGS
There are now more street drugs than ever, and people are dying from drugs and alcohol at unprecedented rates, so it is more important than ever that parents educate themselves on this subject.
Recent studies suggest that teenagers who use marijuana are more likely to use other drugs later on in life. These findings make it all the more important for parents to have conversations with their kids about cannabis.
On the subject of drugs, many parents often don’t know even how to begin broaching this subject. That is particularly true if parents have had little to no experience with drugs in their own lives. But parents see the news reports, and they hear the warnings. Drug use is becoming more common, more dangerous, and more deadly.
The unique struggle that a parent of a drug user faces should not be wished on anyone. When a mother and father have a son or daughter who falls prey to drug addiction or an alcohol habit, this becomes a cruel and entrapping, even devastating, problem for them.
