Is your teenager's behaviour just the normal scourges of adolescence, or is there something more serious lurking in the woodwork? Could your teen be taking drugs? Parents’ reluctance to identify the signs, and their eagerness to give pocket money rather than attention, may cost their child’s life.
Confront the issue and don't just assume that your children won’t do drugs; talk to your children about the dangers of drug abuse; if you suspect something, act immediately; check the example you set for your children; be on the lookout, especially if there is a predisposition to alcoholism or other drug use in some other family members; try to develop a relationship of openness and trust with your children; take an interest in what your children are doing in their spare time; and get counselling if there is a problem.
